5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Stories
My four-year-old son (and I) have learned so much about Hinduism -- religion and philosophy -- by reading this delightful book. This is a great gift for the Westernized Indian parent who wants to instill a bit of Indian culture in his/her child.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the very young
These are good stories, but the cover is a bit deceptive: these are not stories for the primary grades so much as they are for lower intermediate (i.e., 12 to 14 year olds.) The story concepts are fairly complex, and the length of the stories -- and syntax -- are far beyond the attention skills of your average 6 year old.

It is a great product - very nicely done and very colorful. My son was very interested in reading and looking through this book. My husband (who is from India originally) was also very impressed with it. Great find!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, January 5, 2013

This review is from: Indian Children's Favorite Stories (Hardcover)
My husband (Indian) LOVED the book, and so based on that AND the fact that my son listens mesmerized with attention, I give it 5 stars! The stories are very cute and quite comical, and apparently really are 'traditional', as my husband recognized a couple! He also didn't recognize others, and liked them!

I really like to bring all my son's heritage to life through books (Indian from my husband and Hispanic from me) and this book is helpful in doing that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories that are not scary, April 8, 2012
This review is from: Indian Children's Favorite Stories (Hardcover)
The stories are child friendly and have brought a lot of sweet dreams to my children. This is the one book that we read a story from at least once a week that is in our book collection.

This book not only with funny, full of sense of humor stories, also with great education value. Things can be discuss with my 6 years old daughter, and for her to understanding the Indian culture.....way better than the Disney princess story......... way more educated and enlightenment to read every night.

I really wanted to give my nephews and nieces books about Indian stories but written in English. This can be really hard to find. I found these to be best and my nieces and nephews love reading them themselves now that they are at age they read by themselves.
