our family has a big indian influence. my husband's father is from india. my husband and his brother ran a indian restaurant for many years. so to find a children's book that introduces little minds to the extremely complex world of hinduism is a treat!
ganesha's sweet tooth (chronicle, 2012) is a very simplified story of the god ganesha and the writing of the epic hindu poem the mahabharata. there are big and small creatures, candy (!!!) kings and queens and much more packed into this bold and colorfully illustrated book. prepare to be dazzled. this is one of my son's favorite bedtime books!
