Beautiful illustration and narration 31 May 2013
By BongMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was much loved by me and my daughters. The folk tale is something I have grown up with but the author's narration makes the book timeless.Two remarkable features of the book for me were the use of onomatopoeia and the vibrant colors in each page.

Grandma and the Great Gourd 23 May 2013
By Jo Reeding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A great read-aloud! This book has a pattern and rhythm that will keep children involved and wanting to hear more. The lively illustrations add to the joy. I bought one to read aloud in my library and will need to get another because the first one already has a wait list. I hope Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni will write some more Bengali folktales for my collection.

What a great gift for kids!! 22 May 2013
By BGS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We love to share books with our kids that are fun yet incorporate some sort of bigger life lesson. Grandma and the Great Gourd do an excellent job of both! So glad we found this gem. We're grateful to the authors for this fresh, modern version of a timeless Bengali folktale. It is really a perfect gift for kids.
