In 1832, Puduru Chadalavada Seetarama Sastry was entrusted by his British friend, Mestarkululo, to write an educational book for British children. Puduru Chadalavada Seetarama Sastry wrote the book under the pen name Bala Siksha. The book was reprinted with 78 pages for the first time in 1856. By 1965, the book was renamed Balala Viveka Kalpa Taruvu after the inclusion of material on literature, geography, Sanskrit prosody, and other topics. In 1916, the book was published by Vavilla Ramaswamy Sastrulu & Sons under the name Pedda Bala Siksha. The latest version was updated by Gajula Satyanarayana, a popular writer.
