"...My Raksha Bandhan: Promise to Protect by Priya Kumari and Komal Garg is an informative and educational book that explains why and how Raksha Bandhan, a Hindu festival, is celebrated. The story is a good and interesting way to learn about the Hindu festival and the culture. The illustrations are colorful and vibrant, just like the festival, and make the storybook eye-catching and captivating for young readers. The details about the festival have been explained in detail so that anyone reading the book will be able to understand about the festival of Raksha Bandhan. It is a good book for parents and tutors to use for story telling sessions so that they can teach their children about other cultures and festivals in an exciting and interesting way." - (5 stars) Readers' Favorite




"Authors of children's literature Priya Kumari and Komal Garg are adept in promoting/inculcating joyful learning among children about Indian folklore, festivals, rituals and associated mantras by means of beautiful illustrations, imparting interesting visual and sound effects.....is immensely enjoyable.... Of special interest is the accompanying Raksha mantra or the protective chant recited while tying the sacred thread. It is this which brings out the story behind the 'promise to protect' festival and makes the event glorious. A glossary at the end explains the Hindi terms used in the narrative." -Ms Sunita Dwivedi, Silk Road Traveler and researcher, Author of Buddha in Gandhara, Buddha In Central Asia, Buddhist Heritage Sites of India.




"...simple interesting way to communicate to young children salient details of our rich and profound family traditions, through stories from Puranas... I can call a genius product..."
