Roti: One of our Favorite Urdu Poems for Kids

Here is a video of Zeynab and I singing one of our favorite urdu poems for kids about Roti. This poem is written by Me, Tamania (aka Urdu Mom) and I would really appreciate it if you give the right credits when you share this poem.

Here are the lyrics:

Ye hai pyari se eik roti,

Dost hain is ke sabzi aur boti,

Naan aur paratha hain is ke bhai,

Khoob barhta hai jis ne roti khaye

And here are lyrics written in urdu script:

یہ ہے پیاری سی ایک روٹی،
دوست ہیں اس کے سبزی اور بوٹی،
نان اور پراٹھا ہیں اس کے بھائی،
خوب بڑھتا ہے جس نے روٹی کھائی۔
