CHILDREN ARE FOND OF TWO THINGS: PLAYING AND LISTENING TO STORIES. THEY LEARN MANY GOOD THINGS OF LIFE WHILE PLAYING AND LISTENING TO STORIES. NOT ONLY CHILDREN BUT EVERYONE ELES LIKES STORIES. MAN LEARNS HUMANITY THROUGH STORIES. WE HAVE A WOUNDERFUL HERITAGE OF WELL-KNOWN STORIES LIKE ‘PANCHTANTRA’, ‘HITOPADESH’ AND OTHERS. THERE IS SOMETHING WHICH ATTRACTS CHILDREN AND WRITERS EVEN TODAY. IN THE COLOURFUL WORLD OF THESE STORIES THERE ARE MANY GEMS OF MORALS. THESE STORIES ARE A VALUABLE SOURCE OF INSPERATION FOR CHILDREN LITERTURE IN GUJARATI. FROM THE BEGNING OF CHILDREN LITERATURE IN GUJARATI WE FIND A POWERFUL UNDER-CURRENT OF THESE STORIES. AMONG ALL THESE STORY BOOKS I LIKE ‘ A TREASURY OF TALES ’ , WRITTEN BY V RAMANUJ. I FOUND HERE THE MOST POPULAR STORIES, LESS POPULAR STORIES AND SOME ORIGNAL ONES. THE PECULIARITY IS THAT THE STORIES ARE PRESENTED IN TWO DIFFERENT FORMS, ONE NARRATIVE AND THE OTHER VISUAL. HERE PICTORIAL EFFECT IS AN IMPORTANT AS NARRATION. BY PRESENTING THE MATERIAL IN THIS FORM SHRI V. RAMANUJ HAS DONE A GREAT SERVICE TO CHILDREN’S LITERATURE IN GUJARATI. THE AUTHOR HAS UNDERSTOOD THE REAL SPIRIT OF THESE STORIES AND HAS EXPRESSED IT WELL IN WORDS. HIS EFFORT AND VISION ARE PERCEIVED IN EACH PAGE OF THE BOOK. V. RAMANUJ IS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO IS MORE KNOWN AS A COMBINATION OF COLOUR AND BRUSH, PEN AND WORD.AS AN ILLUSTRATOR HE HAS BEEN INSPIRED BY HIS FATHER MANAHARLAL, WHO INTRODUCED HIS CAPABILITIES TO PUBLISHERS, NEWS PAPERS AND MAGAZINES. SOMETIMES ILLUSTRATIONS ARE VERY ESSENTIAL THEN WORDS. SHRI V. RAMANUJ SHARED HIS EXPERTISE IN CONVERTING WORDS TO LIVELY ILLUSTRATIONS WITH MANY RENOWNED PUBLISHERS, NEWS PAPERS AND MAGAZINES. TO MY SURPRISE AND ENVY SHRI V. RAMANUJ CAN VERY EASILY WRITE FOU CHILDREN AS EASY HE CAN ILLUSTRATE. ONE IS STRUCK BY THE AMAZING VERSATILITY OF HIS GENIUS. THIS LUCID, PRACTICAL AND PASSIONATE MAN, BELIEVED IN NATURALISM IN EDUCATION AND THE TOTAL FREEDOM IN LEARNING FOR CHILDREN. UNPARALLELED IN SCOPE AND QUALITY AND DESIGNED FOR READING ALOUD, THIS SPLENDID COLLECTION BRINGS TOGETHER 111 OF THE MOST MEMORABLE AND BELOVED CHILDREN STORIES OF V. RAMANUJ. THESE SHORT READ-ALOUD STORIES REPRESENT THE COMPLETE ARRAY OF CHILDHOOD THEMES-ANIMAL STORIES, FANTASIES, FABLES, MAGICAL STORIES, STORIES ABOUT EVERYDAY LIFE AND MORE. HE ABOUNDS IN ILLUSTRATIONS DRAW FROM HOME LIFE. THE LITTLE CHILD IS HIS KINGDOM. IT IS A GIFT, A KEEPSAKE, AND A COMPANION IN A CHILD’S FIRST STEP TOWARDS LIFELONG LOVE OF READING. THESE STORIES, FULL OF AGE-OLD IDEAS HAVE BEEN TRANSLATED TO AMUSE CHILDREN. I HAVE TRIED TO REPRODUCE THEM IN THE SAME FORM, SO THAT READING FROM A TRANSLATION GETS GREETED WITH PRECISELY THE SAME EAGERNESS; HOPING THAT THESE BOOKS WILL BE USEFUL TO THOSE WHO HAVE MUCH TO DO WITH CHILDREN, MOTHERS AND TEACHERS. CHILDREN LISTEN TWICE AS EAGERLY TO A STORY TOLD, AS IT IS MORE SPONTANEOUS, THE CONNECTION WITH THE AUDIENCE IS CLOSER AND MORE ELECTRIC. THE ADDED CHARM OF THE PERSONAL ELEMENT COMES FILTERED THROUGH THE NARRATOR’S OWN ENJOYMENT, THE CONNECTION IS IMMEDIATE. FOR THE EASE AND JOY OF CHILDREN, MAY THE ART OF STORY-TELLING BE URGED AS PRE-EMINENT OVER THE ART OF READING. CHILDREN ENJOY STORIES, WHICH TAKE THEIR PERSONAL SAVOR MERELY FROM THE FACT THAT THEY FLOW FROM THE LIPS IN SPONTANEOUS, HOMELY PHRASES, WITH AN APPRECATIVE GUSTO, WHICH SUGGESTS PARTICIPATION. THEY ENJOY THEM WITH A DIFFERENT TINGLE AND INTEREST. THEIR FACES RELAX INTO AMUSED SMILES AND FINALLY BREAK NTO RIPPLES OF MIRTH. THE CHOICE OF WORDS AND IMAGES ARE SIMPLE, STIMULATING THE CHILD’S MORAL IMAGINATION. THE SIMPLICITY OF MANNER AND MATTER HAS THE RIGHT APPEAL TO CHILDREN. THE CHARM LIES IN THE “DIRECTNESS” IN THESE STORIES. ITS MOVEMENT IS UNIMPEDED, INCR
