Synopsis

All About Indonesia Stories, Songs and Crafts for Kids by Linda Hibbs

All About Indonesia introduces children to a place where people in blue jeans walk alongside those in traditional sarongs, where fast cars and oxcarts share the same roads, and where ancient village traditions still thrive in a world of cars and cellphones. This book invites children on a journey of adventure through a fascinating land of contrasts-where ancient temples and modern skyscrapers coexist. Kids get to try Indonesian crafts and recipes, and experience age-old folktales. All About Indonesia even contains a brief introduction to the national language, Bahasa Indonesia, and opens the door to a land that readers will never forget.
