Amazing stories with life changing lessons. Loved it. As always Sudha Murty's books are must read. In the time of lockdown, her stories have proved to be of great relief. Yay! I got a signed copy. Thanks Amazon.
These days I’ve been starting my morning by reading this cutest little storybook by SudhaMurty. It’s based on the current pandemic and revolves around the lives of these kids who are spending the summer quarantined with their grandparents. Their days are spent sharing the house chores, helping prepare food for those who need it, and listening to endless stories from their grandparents about beasts, gods, mythical lands, royal families, and talking animals.
I loved how the entire book is composed of short stories and yet there’s a bigger storyline of a global pandemic. The book even keeps reminding us time and again about the precautions that we need to still be taking to stay safe. Perfect for children, and for adults who don’t mind delving into some childhood tales once in a while.
Grandparents' Bag of Stories by SudhaMurty is a collection of stories perfectly fitting the bill for kids. We know how coronavirus and the lockdown following it shut us. It had brought our lives to a halt, and we found ourselves drowning in anxiety and monotony. The children were greatly affected, for they couldn't find a way to break this chain of dull and bland life confined within the walls of their homes.
So, Ajja and Ajji took it upon themselves to make days better for their grandchildren. They welcomed them along with Kamlu Ajji into their house in Shiggaon. Through the daily activities, the grandparents' tend to their grandkids with timeless tales. The children find happiness and peace while they listen to the stories of goddesses, kings, princesses, serpents, magical beanstalks, thieves, kingdoms, and palaces, among others.
SudhaMurty is the one who weaves magic with words. Her words are always simple, but the stories ring true to us because of their relatability. They're beautiful as they speak of traditions and culture in the author's peculiar style. This book shall make up to be the perfect gift for the children.
