About this title


Audio read-along books for children based on folktales from different regions of India. The narration by renowned singer Usha Uthup in English is highly entertaining and expressive. The book illustrate authentic folklore characters and regional artwork in vibrant colors. Children can sing along with the music. Several songs are presented in a world music format, concluding with a key take home message.

This is a folktale from the State of Rajasthan, India. Peacock becomes leader of the forest, and because of his beauty, Surya the daughter of the Sun king wants to marry him. Even after they marry, Peacock is concerned with his looks and makes his wife simply cook and clean. After being sent back to earth by the angry king, Peacock is replaced by another leader and learns that looks alone are not what matter.

One full colour soft bound 22-page book, one 22-minute audio tape, lyrics to the songs, and a special learning insert. Narrated by Usha Uthup.
