Illustrated by Pardeep Singh, Edited by Manjyot Kaur. This is a first edition book published in 2012 by the Sikh Educational & Cultural Foundation. It is a new, oversized hardcover book of 180 pages that has dozens of fulll-page color illustrations. 11" x 9" 172 pages
This is an incredible collection of stories inspired by Bhai Sahib Bhai Vir Singh's classic Guru Nanak Chamatakar. Journey with the Gurus has stories of Guru Nanak Dev jis early life and travels, told in such an engaging way that readers young and old are drawn into the mystical majesty of the great Guru Nanak. Inni Kaur retells these ancient stories in modern language and in such a way that they interweave into life today. Even though I have heard these stories over and over, Inni Kaur tells them so well it is like hearing them for the first time.
The illustrations are some of the best I have every seen. Almost every other page has a full color picture, drawing the eyes and captivating the attention of young readers and listeners. The colors are vibrant, and the quality of the paper and printing is exceptional.
This is the best thing that has happened for Sikh children in a very long time! Inni Kaur sets the bar high for writing of Sikh history for children.
As Ruben Pal Singh wrote in his review on Sikhchic: What I appreciate most about this book is how engaged our children were while reading it - whether it was the beautiful illustrations that kept our little ones sneaking a peek into the next page or the discussions we had afterwards that would go on past bedtime.
