  • 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 quite 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 e.g the story of how Gane [...]


  • 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 quite 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 p [...]



  • 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 a [...]


  • I like Seasons of Splendour Although I haven t read all of the tales, my favourite is Savitri and Satyavan This story I also read in RC Dutt s version of The Mahabharata I attempted to adapt both versions into a play, but that I haven t finished yet I hope to, soon, though Please read this book.


  • Lexile Measure 790L Illustrated by Michael ForemanThis books is all about tales, myths and legends from India Hindu gods are a common theme throughout the book The book also gives information about Indian festivals This book is great for 6th grade.



  • My brother and I used to have storied from this book read to us at bedtime Indian mythology full of gods, warriors, princesses and evil in laws.


  • The subject matter is fascinating Unfortunately the tales are told by someone who is skilled at writing cookbooks.
