Amma, Tell Me About... Ganesha!
by Bhakti Mathur

The ‘Amma Tell Me’ Series is a charming and informative series of children’s books that introduces the major Hindu festivals and figures to young readers in a fun and non-preachy way. Written in rhyme with vivid, captivating illustrations, the books are perfect for families wanting to share stories from Hindu mythology with their children or for educators looking for resources on Indian festivals and culture for their students.

We celebrate Ganesha’s birthday
With so much fun and lots of fanfare
His idols are offered to the rolling seas
With ardent prayer and tender care.

Lord Ganesha, loved by one and all
Is the divine son of Shiva and Parvati
And this is the story of how he and
His jumbo elephant head came to be!

The ‘Amma Tell Me’ Series brings alive the magical tales from India in an enthralling manner using simple language and vivid imagery, for children aged 3-9 years. Author Bhakti Mathur decided to create the series when she struggled to buy books on Hindu festivals that were suitable to read to her young children. The result is a series of colourful, lighthearted books which introduce children to Indian mythology in a simple, entertaining way. Bhakti uses rhyming prose, combined with stunning, opulent illustrations by artist Maulshree Somani to explain the significant festivals, figures and stories of Hindu mythology.
