This Bhu Devi Mantra has an important place in our hearts and in our home. The kids know it by heart and are reminded to recite it every morning because….

….it’s one of the first things they see in their bathroom lounge.  I had this custom canvas created, after which I then painstakingly hand-glittered the text.

Here’s a cool way to celebrate Earth Day with your kids: adopt a piece of the Earth through NASA’s Adopt The Earth Initiative. Nasa has divided the Earth into 64,000 parcels (approximately 55 miles wide), and each participant is randomly-assigned a section. You just enter your (or your child’s) name, and then you can print and display your certificate.

NASA’s goal is to have all 64,000 parcels “adopted.”

Of course, no legal rights are conferred; however, you do get a chance to view state-of-the-art climate data.

Her name is still Rapunzel, but she wears a bindi, jumkhas, and a sari and befriends a handsome yuvraj….

If you haven’t met Once Upon a World books yet, you are missing out on multicultural adventures. They take classic fairy tales and simply shift the settings: Rapunzel in India, Cinderella in Mexico, and Snow White in Japan.

Terrific board books for your preschoolers.

Celebrate Shri Rama Navami tomorrow, April 5th, with our beautiful print featuring “Raghupati Raaghav Raja Ram” – a must-learn bhajan for all Hindu kids.

As you may know, this version of the Bhajan (some call it a dhun) was a favorite of, and popularized by, Gandhiji – and was reportedly sung during the great Salt March to Dandi in 1930.

The Bhajan of course extols the virtues of Lord Rama. (See here for a more in-depth explanation of the lyrics).

We have also created a unique Paper Learning Puzzle – a terrific, hands-on activity to help kids learn the Bhajan. Just print, cut, and have kids rearrange the lines in the proper order – reciting the lines as they do so. Careful! There are a few tricks, so kids have to really know the lines to get it right.

It’s a great way to celebrate Lord Rama’s birthday!
