  • Description

    No one can resist a good story, especially those told by a grandmother. In Grandma’s Bag of Stories, Sudha Murty reminds readers of a simple time, where a fun afternoon usually involved sitting by one’s grandma to hear her stories.

    Summary of the Book

    There is no greater story teller than a grandmother. Her stories are full of life and wisdom, and her tales teach kids about proud kinds, mischievous monkeys, cheating thieves, bears and gods. In stories such as that of a bear who partook of some really bad dessert, a lazy man who would not put out a fire until it scorched his beard and a queen who discovered silk. Hilarious, wise and instructive, these stories teach kids about the value of elders and the wisdom that the older generation can pass down.

    Wonderful stories which keeps my little nephew engaged

    My nephew is 5 years old and daily he wants stories to sleep, eat, and even to sit still..

    I used to tell him all kids stories from his age of 3 and worst part is he remembers every single of word of it. Imagine, i have told the story of The Hobbit and, when next time i repeated the same, he remembered the names of all 13 dwarfs! Soon i ran out of new stories, and repetition became extremely boring for his small super-fast brain..

    The usual kids story picture books, contain only one story ...

    Great Read

    i ordered the book for my little nephew, but ended up reading it myself. the book certainly reminds of your childhood days. N hats off to Sudha Murthy mam, for her story telling skills and impeccable style of putting across valuable lessons to children in very easy language.I only feel that there could have been more colorful illustrations.

    My childhood revisited.

    Grandma's bag of stories is indeed a great read. Sudha Murty's simple and lucid style of writing makes reading a pleasure. I was taken back to my childhood days as a young girl in kozhikode,where my cousins and I used to listen to stories from an old neighbour whom we used to call "Aai".An extraordinary lady full of life,she
    regaled us with mythology and morals through her stories.
    Mrs.Murty's easy flow of words and her ability to keep the children engrossed and create suspense about the n...

    Very Useful

    Its a very good book and highly recommend this for reading at bedtime to small children.

    The flow of the book is very good and different. The stories are all interesting and very apt for children.
