Review: USBORNE ILLUSTRATED STORIES FROM INDIA



Synopsis: Lose yourself in incredible tales of bravery, brilliance, battles and banquets. There are fearsome tigers, greedy elephants, mighty gods and goddesses, and even a dancing goat. beautifully illustrated with exquisite detail, this wonderful collection captures the magic of India.

Review: Yet another lovely book to look at and yet again I am falling in love with India. As children we all read/listen to those stories with a moral. This book contains beautiful moral stories which include well known gods and goddesses. Making you feel just little a child all over again. 

Each story is nice and short, perfect for bed time reading... or in my case reading in my lunch break at work!

My favourite short story included is Tigers and Cats. Any cat lover will enjoy this one as it explains how we ended up with the domestic cat. Who (as many of us will know) think they are mini tigers!

Every story has a lesson to teach. No matter how young or old you are, it is never too late to learn something new. Sometimes we need to be reminded of the good in the world as we get caught up in our own day to day life's. 

This book is a wonderful way to introduce children to a new culture and new ideas. It's also perfect for adults that have fallen head over heels in love with India.
