This exciting narrative for kids 6 and up is filled with South Asian music, sound effects and colorful pictures, and brings alive the stories like never before.
Can a donkey sing? Dhondu, the donkey, believes he is a wonderful singer. Unable to resist his urge to sing, he lands into big trouble.
Growing up is fun with Karadi, the bear, as he takes you into the enchanting world of fables from South Asian culture. Drawn from the Panchatantra and Jataka, ancient collections first written in Sanskrit around 200 BCE, these stories gently teach a lesson.
And behind all this fun is a powerful learning experience designed by educators to fire your child's creativity, develop reading and language skills, improve concentration and attention span.
