Many things happen under the banyan. Weary travelers rest in its shade, wise men meditate, villagers sit together to settle disputes. They also listen to stories. This is a series of folk stories from different parts of India. The medium of "book and tape" brings alive the folktale along with the colors and music of the region. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

A bad-tempered snake kills a cow and everyone is afraid... until a wandering monk tells the snake a secret that changes his life. And theirs. This exciting narrative filled with South Asian music, sound effects and colorful pictures bring alive the stories like never before.

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
