I'm working on a wordbook for children. The other day, I needed to know the English word for Koi mas. SoI searched in Bangla Academy's dictionaries, but to no avail. Then I browsed on the Internet and found several words, but I was not sure which one was accurate. The same goes for other fish varieties that are commonin our country.
I think Bangla Academy should create a website for children containing materials on common birds, fishes, flowers and animals that are often seen in our country. Also, the website may include some storybooks with moral teachings, biographies of eminent personalities, sci-fi books, rhymes and dictionaries designed specifically to meet the needs of the children.
