Tales from India by Jamila Gavin - ADVISABLE

Gavin, Jamila Tales from India: Stories of Creation and the Cosmos, illustrated by Amanda Hall.  Templar (Candlewick), 2011.  $20.  Gavin’s tellings and Hall’s paintings work together to create a beautiful new collection of Indian mythology.  I am not well-versed in the mythos, so I had a great time reading and learning, without feeling overwhelmed.  The stories would be accessible to any level, whether read out loud to an elementary, or used as part of the 9th grade Common Core.  EL, MS, HS – ADVISABLE.
