Amma Series

Amma, Tell Me About Holi

Tell your children about Holi, the Indian Festival of Colours, by reading this beautiful children's picture book to them, written in rhyme with captivating illustrations. For ages 2 to 8.

Siblings Klaka and Kiki gather with their friends and family to celebrate this spring festival which symbolises new beginnings, friendships, forgiveness, and, of course, a license to being naughty and playing pranks! At the end of the day as Amma tucks the brothers in bed, she answers their countless questions - Why do we colour one another on Holi, where does Holi get its name from? Why do we light a fire the night before Holi?

Come let's hear the magical story,
Of Holi in all its vibrant glory.
As told to Klaka, an eager little boy,
By his Amma, with dollops of joy.

First, a tale of colors and childhood fun:
Naughty Krishna and Radha, his loved one.
Next, an evil king who thought he was God,
His son Prahlad refused to accept the fraud.

He threatened his own son, who did not think him divine.
But against the evil king, faith and miracles did align.
A story of faith, devotion and love.
Passed down to children, from generations above...

Interesting - t’s a beautiful book I must say that and the cover is so beautiful that I wanted to keep the pictures simple so you can look at the beautiful cover. It’s the book of “Amma tell me about” series. This is part one so initially author has explained background information. I am fan of mythology and even though it’s children’s book I literally enjoyed reading it too much. I grew up listening mythological stories from my grandmother and one of the protagonist has the name of her. So it’s a nostalgic moment for me. Amma is telling the story to Klaka and Kiki. Amma is explaining about all nine and upcoming tenth avatars of vishnu. Obviously everything is long with beautiful and colourful pictures. I wanted to share them here but I don’t want to spoil it for readers. This book is about the very first avatar that is Matsya avatar. The story is indeed interesting. It’s written in children friendly language. Like statements such as “superstar” kind of words. I liked the moral part like about inevitable circle of life and death situations. I want to read the entire series so badly. It’s written in such a way that it will develop vocabulary of children. I indeed enjoyed it so much. Strongly recommended from my side.

Its a good buy for children - I had gone through their website through instagram.. The author Bharti Mathur has creatively written these story books.. I am currently reading "amma tell me the Avatars of Vishnu (part 1)".

This loving, inclusive message of connectedness is poignant and simple, and its warm, inclusive, and immersive illustrations give it even more of an impact. @ammatellme connects with little readers through awesome cartoons of creatures.., These story books aims at teaching the kids our mythological tales in a fun and creative way, this beautiful book seeks to connect with kids in a fun way.. would love to read their more creations..
