This book talks about some of the exciting traditional Indian games.

Mani was a little boy, and he was playing with “Marble rolls”. His friend Ramu came, and he wants to play with marble rolls, in turn, he gives his “Gilli danda” to Mani.

“Gadagada Gudugudu the marble rolls, Down the road the marble rolls”.

Then the little boy called “Kittu” came along with a colorful kite and asked for marble. In turn, he gave the kite to Ramu.

Then Kittu gave the marble to “Raja” and in turn get the smooth flat stone to play hopscotch.

Raja gave the marble to “pattu,” and in turn got the “Spinning top.”

Pattu gave back the marble to “Mani” and got the Gilli danda. Finally “Marble rolls” came back to “Mani” itself.

“Gadagada Gudugudu the marble rolls,” “A Gilli danda comes, and the marble goes.”

My review

  • Am sure the story was a bit confusing in the start. However, its great while reading and explaining the story to kids. It is a set of friends who are playing different games and shuffling the games between them.We can clearly explain the concept of sharing to little kids.It talked about various traditional games, which many people are not aware of. It is an excellent chance to know about them.
  • I still remember playing all of these games in my childhood. And the sad part is, my daughter didn’t get a chance to watch any of these games. I wanted her to explore these traditional games, which will give great exploration.
  • I would recommend this book for kids of 2.5 to 4 years old.

Purchase Option:

  • I have got this book from an Indian Mompreneur. Am attaching her Facebook page for reference.
