The Boy with Stars in His Mouth And Other Hindu Stories by Lynne Broadbent, John Logan

The Stories to Remember series answers a demand for good quality Big Book format books with simply-written and well illustrated stories from the different faith traditions. Each title in the series contains three stories, chosen to represent different aspects of/key concepts within a main faith tradition as identified by locally agreed syllabuses for RE. 'Big book' format enables teachers to use the stories/text with class groups-the language level is appropriate for pupils aged 5-6 (Key Stage 1). Teacher's notes printed on the inside covers provide guidance on how the stories could provide a starting point for learning and assessment in RE. The Boy with Stars in His Mouth presents stories from the Hindu tradition which reflect key themes in the Hindu faith, including: the Boy with Stars in His Mouth, the Elephant-headed God, and the Monkey General. All books are available in Welsh language editions.
