I had the pleasure of meeting a Grandmother, Mother and her son from India. They fell in love with Barefoot Books, especially the Elephant Dance and Home For A Tiger. Let me share a little with you on one of these delightful paperback children's books.
A Journey to India
Listen along with Ravi to Grandfather's captivating stories about India, where the sun is like a ferocious tiger and monsoon rains cascade like waterfalls. Notes after the story include facts about India's animals, food, culture and religion, and a simple elephant dance music score.
Ages 4 to 10 years

* My Review:
The story is fun to read and will draw young readers in with its use of bright colors and talk of jungle animals. The book will teach kids a lot of interesting facts about India's people and cultures, and includes a "Living In India" spread that details the country's geography, religion, various native animals, and exotic food and spices.
The book is easy to read, very colorful with bright illustrations and very educational!
First off Ravi and his grandfather go to market and buy a bamboo flute. Seeing sheet music in a book is always an added bonus for me being a piano teacher!
Towards the back of the book you will learn about the geography and living in India.
You will also find a list of food and spices from India!
