Panchatantra - 51 short stories with Moral: Illustrated is a great book to add to any kid’s collection. The book contains 51 stories all have a moral theme to them. I have read this book to my son multiple times to show the importance of moral compass. The book consists of five main stories called frame story:
• The Separation of Friends (The Lion and the Bull)
• The Gaining of Friends (The Dove, Crow, Mouse, Tortoise and Deer)
• Of Crows and Owls (War and Peace)

The five main stories are supplemented by other stories.

Generally good. Since I chose to give this book as a gift for second graders, I would have liked it more if the choice of words in many occasions could be better. Specially where descriptions for negative characters are made.
