Ganesha's Sweet Tooth by Sanjay Patel & Emily Haynes
For a super-fun cultural lesson, this is a completely new retelling of a classic Hindu tale. As a child, Hindu god Ganesha (who has the head of an elephant) loved sweets. But when he bit into a jawbreaker – against his friend Mr. Mouse's warning – his tusk broke off. But he later found a purpose for it – using the magical tusk to transcribe the seemingly endless Mahabharata, the epic poem of Hindu literature. We love getting lost in the pages – made amazing by the gorgeous illustrations from Pixar animator Sanjay Patel.
