The book itself isn't that great. The words chosen for each letter of the alphabet aren't that creative nor are they reflective of the cultures within Pakistan. For instance, they picked F is for Fruits, which is so generic. And WHERE is C is for Cricket? Honestly, I'm very disappointed in the writing too, which is very awkward and unengaging for kids.
I do NOT recommend this book if you're trying to expose a child to Pakistani culture.
The seller I bought this from was great, however!
