Ganesha's Sweet Tooth
Indian Culture, World Religions
The bold, bright colors of India leap right off the page in this fresh and funny picture book retelling (with a twist) of how Ganesha came to help write the epic poem of Hindu literature, the Mahabharata. Ganesha is just like any other kid, except that he has the head of an elephant and rides around on a magical mouse. And he loves sweets, especially the traditional dessert laddoo. But when Ganesha insists on biting into a super jumbo jawbreaker laddoo, his tusk breaks off! Ganesha is terribly upset, but with the help of the wise poet Vyasa, and his friend Mr. Mouse, he learns that what seems broken can actually be quite useful after all. With vibrant, graphic illustrations, expressive characters, and offbeat humor, this is a wonderfully inventive rendition of a classic tale.
My First Sikh Books
World Religions, Indian Culture
My First Sikh by Parveen Kaur Dhillon is a two-in-one children's book about young Singhs and Kaurs of the Sikh faith. This two-in-one board book includes My First Sikh Boy Book and My First Sikh Girl Book, two wonderful children's books about young Singhs and Kaurs of the Sikh faith. These books are designed for parents of toddlers and early reading young children to gain awareness of the Sikh identity and values. They are richly illustrated to show images of young Sikhs living with Sikh ideals. These books are perfect for families with young Sikh children or for giving to non-Sikhs who want to gain a better understanding of basic Sikh ideals. They are also good to share in schools and libraries to foster greater awareness in communities where young Sikhs are growing.
Children hear more than we think. Books provide context for new and potentially confusing topics, and give caregivers a way to approach complex topics.
Amazing, highly curated books organized by topics, including strong female leads, LGBTQ family, Black Lives Matter, grandparents and more.
