    I loved reading this book as I felt that the collection of stories really reflect the title 'Seasons of Splendour' well The author really encourages the reader to explore India within these myths and tales and she is successful in doing so She brings them to life and makes you feel a part of them The stories vary in length but are uite simplisitic and I found them all to be engaging The book could be used to provide examples or support topics in re literacy and history eg the story of how Ganesh got his heard Or you could just dip into it as a short home time read for younger pupils whilst encouraging older pupils to read independently I think this book is most suited for Y3 Y6

    We used this text to introduce stories from another culture This book has good examples of figurative and descriptive language Many of the stories are uite short so can be used as an introduction to a literacy lesson or in guided reading These stories are spiritual and mainly based in India We used this book alongside Footprints in the forest by Action Aid with year 4 to introduce stories from another culture They offer a good contrast to genres of writing as the class I read this with were previously writing fantasy stories

    This is the most fun least boring collection of folktales I've read Sometimes folktales can be so wooden and stale as if plucked from an academic work of anthropology rather than from the lips of an enthusiastic storyteller with an enthusiastic audience These ones are personalized and lively with vivid details exactly like the voice of Jaffrey who is also an author of excellent Indian cookbooks She tells us they are not necessarily authentic but they are as her own family told them Some are ancient and some are perhaps uniue to her family; all are worth reading aloud The stories come with brief introductions to indicate the context in which they are told in her family and are organized by the lunar calendar

    India is particularly rich in colourful follore These stories told by parents to their children for many generations make a rich and dazzling collection of mythological tales drawn from a great heritage of Hindu epics from the life of the great god Krishna to how the monkey god Hanuman helped defeat the Demon King Ravan and a host of other magical and spectacular creatures The stories are arranged according to the seuence of the Hindu year and each is prefaced with a short personal anecdote from the author's childhood
