Audio read-along books for children based on the ancient South Asian Panchatantra and Jataka stories, precursors to Aesop's fables. The narration by renowned South Asian actors in English is highly entertaining. The books are illustrated with cuddly characters in vibrant colors. Children can sing along with the jungle music. Several songs are presented in a world music format, concluding with a key take home message. A glossary of key words and pronunciations, special background information and a learning guide accompanies each title. Produced by Sky Music (India), a corporation led by educators and musicians trained in special education and world music. Join Karadi the bear as he tells the story of Dhondu the donkey. Learn that false pride can land you in big trouble. Dhondu, while eating merrily in the cucumber patch, decides to sing at the top of his voice and despite Juno the jackal's warning, the villagers hear the awful sound and come armed with sticks and stones. One full colour soft bound 22-page book, one 22-minute audio tape, lyrics to the songs, and a special learning insert. Narrated by Saeed Jaffrey. -opisanie
