Stories in this book are short and straightforward. They can be read easily by children of upper primary. These stories have familiar events, places and geographical features, animals and human characters which children know about or will know as they grow up.
There are 38 stories and they are meant to help children build up useful character traits such as, honesty, reliability, deligence, co-operation, wisdom and so on. About thirty years ago, parents and grandmothers used to tell children stories while they sat by the fireside waiting for food to be cooked. This way children got a lot of advice. With urbanisation and modernisation, this aspect seems to have disappeared. In general, parents are too busy to have time to chat with their children leave alone telling them stories.
In urban places, television has taken over the role of stories previously told by grandmothers and parents.
Unfortunately, television programmes entertain more than teach social and moral values important for character building. This book tries to fill up this gap.
As children read them, they may ask their teachers and parents to explain to them messages in the stories. This way the teacher and the parent may have a chance to interact with children and at the same time impress on them important character traits portrayed in stories.
