ISKCON Guru and Sannyasi, GBC, Co-Minister of ISKCON Conregational Development Ministry
We want all children to become Paramahamsas! Normally we expect brahmacārīs and sannyasis to be paramahamsas. Śrīla Prabhupāda expected his gṛhasthas also to be paramahamsas. This human life is so rare that if we want to understand the spiritual life, we have to begin from the young age.

"I thoughroughly enjoyed Nandapriya's Krishna's Library set. Each book has it's own theme: Krishna's Favorites, Arati, Colors, numbers, and ways to serve Krishna. Nandapriya, a young mother, teacher, and artist, has created a set of Krishna themed board books that are delightful, educational, and fun."

"What wonderful succinctly beautiful illustrations with necessary information for loving and serving Krsna.. Children of all ages will benefit from hearing and chanting these qualities and pastimes of the Lord, while growing their own devotional creepers for their best friend sitting in their hearts."
"Nandapriya's books gave us hundreds of hours of joy. Even a small toddler was able to learn basic lessons from her illustrations. Arati, colours, so many simple lessons learned with her books. I highly recommend them for children age 18 months and older. I hope Nandapriya makes more books!"

"These thoughtful, creative and colorful books by Nandapriya are great beginner books for young children. They touch on the basics in a sweet and Krsna conscious way. A wonderful addition to any Krsna conscious library for children."

"Nandapriya Devi, with her new children's board book series, "Krishna's Library set 1", has fulfilled a decades long need in our ISKCON communities -- well-executed books for children that are educational, inspirational, and fun! Each book in the series features her elegant artwork and simple yet profound reminders of our loving friend, Krishna, flowing so naturally through lessons on colors, numbers, and devotional concepts. If the deep impact these books have on the reader, from toddler to adult, is a measure, one can surmise how freely love for Krishna must flow from Nandapriya's heart, pen, and paintbrush. May we all, children and parents alike, be infected by that same love through these beautiful books that will surely be treasured for generations to come."

"This board book set is truly a dream come true for parents of young devotee children because it provides access to spiritual literature in a fun, engaging, and book-sturdy way! Nandapriya’s original artwork attracts the young eye and brings crucial learning concepts - both academic and spiritual - to life. These board books are the first of their kind and we hope to see more!"

"Being a part of the movement that is literally built on books is something I am always grateful for. When my son was little, I loved reading Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita to him. As he grew, he became more curious, wanted to hold the books, flip through the pages, much to my delight and dismay! As much as I loved seeing my son develop attachment to the books, I was in constant fear that he might tear the pages that I hold so close to my heart.
Then came Nandapriya's books! Just when we needed them! The Krishna's Library Set 1 is everything we hoped for and more. They aren't just perfect little board books for little hands but you get to remember Krsna when you are teaching your child mundane things like colours and numbers! The set also introduces children to the philosophical concepts in an easy manner. Nandapriya's hand drawn pictures are beautiful, simple and give a fresh look to the books. By the mercy of Srila Prabhupada, we are never short of Krsna Conscious literature but having them especially designed for little devotees is a huge advantage. I highly recommend Krishna's Library Set 1 to every teacher, parent, and caregiver who deals with toddlers and also to those who just love picture books!"

"We couldn’t wait til Christmas to open our Krishna's Library set of books! Krishna’s favorite right now is the Krishna’s colors book! He can’t put it down and Giri says HARIBOL!! every time he opens the pages of Nine Ways to Love Krishna! These are already my kids favorite books and mine as well! Nandapriya, thank you dear for creating these beautiful books! We can’t wait to get more."
Founder of Bhakti Kids Sangha and mother of two
"My kids absolutely love the set especially Lali. I love the way Nandapriya linked everything from numbers to colours to Krishna and there are some very nice illustrations of Srila Prabhupada. Lali doesn't like books that don't have Prabhupada in anywhere, so this is a firm favourite with several places where Srila Prabhupada is given the proper respect. Nandapriya cleverly even wove in Srila Prabhupada even in the colours books for orange/saffron as Prabhupada garments."
