On our journey around the world as part of our “Around the World in 12 Dishes” challenge, we reached India and our partners at Sleeping Bear Press (and no, this is not a sponsored post!) had a beautiful book on the topic, titled “T is for Taj Mahal”. It follows the same principle as “D is for Dala Horse”, their book on the Nordic Countries, with taking every letter of the alphabet and picking an India related subject.
It comes in the same size of about 10×10 inches, helping the great illustrations pop and deliver a distinctly visual side to the very interesting content. Again each letter has a drawing, a little two- to four-line poem related to it and also some more facts, so your child can actually grow with this book, since you can start with the images and the poems (like in our case), and then as time progresses to the additional information. For someone, who had never immersed himself into the culture of the Indian sub-continent (i.e. myself), it was a highly informative read, since it also contains a few very interesting facts, such as the number zero originating in India!
“T is for Taj Mahal” is another wonderful book in this series, which is suited for your 2-year old as well as older kids and even adults, with beautiful drawings and great educational value, an excellent way to explore India and its rich and, to us, exotic culture, I definitely recommend this one.
