List of KICD approved textbooks for Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3 in implementation of new CBC 2019

The new competence based curriculum that was rolled out the beginning of this year has seen most parents and teachers falling prey of unscrupulous business persons who are releasing fake imprints.

These business persons are selling textbooks that contain not only misleading  but also age insensitive content.

In order to absolve you of such textbooks that are likely to impact negatively on your  children, I have highlighted lists of books that are approved in Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3.
