Indian Childrens Favorite Stories is a charming selection of eight Indian tales that provide an insight into traditional Indian culture. They make perfect new additions for story time or bedtime reading.

Retold for an international audience, the beautifully illustrated stories will give children of all ages a glimpse into the fables and folklore of India, including tales of how Lord Krishna escapes the evil Kamsas repeated attempts to kill him, and how the elephant keepers daughter, Rani, humbles an unwise and unjust king by emptying his storehouses of rice.

Featured Indian stories include:

  • The Story of Rama, the ancient Indian tale of a princes exile and return to his homeland
  • Sukhu and Dukhu, two sisters--one kind, one selfish--and their different fates
  • Munna and the Grain of Rice, how a good and clever girl saves her people from hunger
  • And five more wonderful tales to delight story lovers everywhere.

A glossary is also included, so that everyone can understand and appreciate the Indian words scattered throughout the stories.
