Synopsis

Prita Goes to India by Prodeepta Das

Seven-year-old Prita has come India for the first time, with her parents and her elder sister, to visit their many relatives. She is fascinated by everything, from the Taj Mahal to the village shrines in Orissa, where her parents were born; from delicious green coconuts to market stalls filled with savoury snacks; but above all, by the way of life lived by her relatives. Some of it is like her life at home - but much of it is very different. This unique series of photographic information books, told in the first person, accompanies children who have grown up away from their family's homeland, and are now visiting it for the first time. The unfamiliar food, clothes, and customs of another country are seen from a fresh, exciting perspective. With stunning photographs and a bright, child-friendly design, this informative, fun series is highly relevant to today's world in which so many people have moved away from their original culture.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
