Format: Paperback
This book is told in the form of a travel journal with photographs. A little girl visits her relatives in India, and so travels from cities to villages, seeing some famous sights in between. It gives a good picture of the lifestyles of India and the different environments. The text is clear and interesting and the photos are realistic snapshots. For children under ten, this is a better way to present India than by a standard non-fiction book.
