Synopsis

My First Book of Hindi Words An ABC Rhyming Book of Hindi Language and Indian Culture by Rina Singh, Farida Zaman

My First Book of Hindi Words is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Hindi language and Indian culture through everyday words. Organised as an ABC rhyming book, My First Book of Hindi Words incorporates common Hindi words into charming English-language rhymes, beginning with: A is for akash. A sky so blue where little birds fly and big planes, too, and on through Z is for zukhaam. Achoo! I sneeze. I must have a cold. Mama, hug me please! Winsome, full-color pictures illustrate each word and allow even very young readers to make their first foray into India's official language. A helpful glossary at the end makes it easy for readers; including parents and teachers to review what they've learned! With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon be a part of the 300 million people worldwide that speak Hindi!

Reviews

This book gently introduces young children to Hindi words using an ABC rhyming format. The words are written in the devanagri script as well as a handy transliteration. Perfect for beginners, it provides a window to basic language and key images for those visiting India for the first time (including the little ones!). --KitaabWorld.com
