About the Jai Jai's
From earliest memories standing in front of a Hindu temple to observing parents with their children in the current day..... the same word echoes, Do Jai Jai . In a simple translation it means Let s pray .
The Jai Jai's is a series books created for children to meet Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The books are aimed at pre-school children aged 18 months to 4 years. Each book has been uniquely written and created to capture the simple essence of Story Telling for young children. To take children to an unknown world to develop and create their imagination whilst entwining their knowledge of these fantastic beings.
There are currently approximately 1 billion Hindus in the world today which make up circa 15% of the world s religious population, but you do not have to be a Hindu to enjoy these playful characters. We live in such a multi-cultural society and children are so interested in their peers beliefs, and what a fun way to learn about diverse backgrounds. These books also provide parents with a backbone to introduce their children to the Hindu religion from the child s early years.
The books have been presented to a Hindu priest who has verified the stories and characters to be acceptable, and correct according to Hindu beliefs. The books all have a simple text matching the knowledge and skills of communication norms expected for a child aged 18 month-4 year old with the correct length of utterance and target vocabulary.
The stories have been written by a UK based author who is also a paediatric speech and language therapist and characters have been amazingly brought to life by our British illustrator. We hope our series of books will be loved by all the family, and become a centre point to the priceless event of bed time stories, and story telling. Whisk your child s imagination off with these beautifully created unique characters, and simple story lines that will last a lifetime. The children will fall in love with their Gods and Goddess..... Their new super heroes."
