Great book for young children to learn about other countries and cultures. I like how the book shows how to pronounce some of the words. It's probably great for a 3 to 6 year old.

I adore this series, and the Indian edition is just as fantastic. It's filled with lots of facts and information to introduce Indian culture to young readers. The search and find is another level of fun and engagement making kids excited to get into the book. The illustrations are also bright and stunning. I can't recommend this book enough!

Fantastic imagery, bright attractive and interesting content!!

Has explorations and explanations from a wide range of subjects to do with India - from its famous movie industry, to its millions of Gods and Goddesses, from its colorful festivals to its regal palaces, and of course from its mouth-watering food to even some of the lingo!

Absolutely lovely overall. Highly recommended for anyone considering traveling to India with a little one, and wants to introduce the idea of India!

This is an amazing children's book, which my daughter and I really loved a lot.  It is so bright and colourful and it is quite comprehensive.  It has so much knowledge and information about India, the Indian people and Indian traditions.  It is such a treasure chest of jewels and I was so excited to read it.  One example of the information given is that on one page it listed the capital of India, the main language spoken, the currency and the population.  I found it all very interesting.  The artwork is simply superb and beautiful.  I highly recommend this book!

Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Yes - read it! Fabulous children's book! Great illustrations that encompass a wide variety of Indian culture. I really impressed at the breadth & depth of the content. Lots to see and talk about on every page. Although I have only seen this one book, I imagine the series would be wonderful for children.

I received an ARC from Netgalley & Encantos Media Studios to prepare my honest review.

My children loved this book and the fun facts, cute pictures, and search and find aspects of this book.  I like the educational aspects, from the facts, correct ways to pronounce names and words, and teaching of culture.  The illustrations are bright and cute.  The rhyming was fun too!

I love this series of Tiny Travelers. So compact with beautiful illustrations, and now when you read during this pandemic, it is somewhat entertaining to be able to travel to other countries within our walls.

Do you know that Namaste means "Hello" as well as "Goodbye" in India? Yes, many people who practice yoga use it, and yoga comes from India too, but it is not a yoga language but Indian. This is an example of what you can find inside the book. So informative yet amusing at the same time.

This was a cute book about some one the main sites of India. The writing style was mainly for younger readers, mostly ages 5-7.

Thank you NetGalley for an advanced copy. I thought the illustrations and pronunciation guides were very well done. The book is very cute and informative. The reading level is appropriate for elementary schools. However, India is a very diverse country by itself, and I don't think the book did justice to this fact. The number of languages or religions could have been discussed. The other major religions and holidays were not mentioned in this book. Since it is not inclusive, I will not be including it in my classroom library.

I loved search and find books as a child and was excited to have the opportunity to share this with the littles in my life. Exposing them to images from around the world at a young age has been a great experience for them, as well as myself, and being able to do so in a format that's fun for them makes it even more engaging. Such a fun series!

This is another cute installment in this series that takes kids around the world. You learn some vocabulary words and touch on some of the highlights of Indian culture and cuisine, while also visiting some of the most well-known places. The rhyming text is fun to read and should keep kids engaged. I appreciate the pronunciation guides that accompany the vocabulary. And the illustrations are super vibrant and happy all throughout.

Thank you to the publisher for fulfilling my review request via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

My daughter and I love reading the Tiny Travelers Books. It is a sweet way to learn about new places and cultures. The newest addition to the series, India does not disappoint. Each page has a beautiful illustration of a special part of Indian culture. There are treasures to find on each page which helps keep children engaged. These are fun and quick reads that I think should be in every library.

A copy of this book was made available by the publisher via netgalley. This is my honest review.

Starting in New Delhi, this brilliant, colorful, and highly educational board book for young children could equally aid adults as an illustrated primer to one of the most vibrant, diverse countries of the world. Through detailed illustrations featuring a search-and-find element on each page for little ones to discover a hidden treasure, readers young and old - for such a compact volume - are given an amazingly in-depth look at India, from the Bollywood film industry in Mumbai ... to a safari in Ranthambore ... via a Holi festival, a game of cricket, even chutney as just one element of the vast array of dishes and cuisines India has to offer ... readers are even treated to an Indian wedding and the art of henna as the new bride's hands are decorated for the ceremony. But it doesn't stop there; India is huge, after all, so Tiny Traveler readers also get to climb the Himalayas, ride on a shikara (houseboat) on Dal Lake in Kashmir, and visit the Taj Mahal - again, all while collecting a new treasure at each site. The words accompanying the lush and lively illustrations - in verse, no less - convey a tremendous amount of information while keep descriptions super-brief (as, really, the images speak for themselves), yet also perfectly serve as signposts spotlighting the historical and cultural importance of India as a nation. Amazing, especially for a small board book, and though this is my first visit with a volume from the Tiny Traveler's Treasure Quest series, if this is any indication of the justice each volume does to the country it's focused on, corny as it sounds I'd say the entire collection deserves a place of honor in any child's library; certainly for their first-class educational value, but also because they are simply that entertaining to look through, even on repeated readings. (Available 5/26)  5/5 stars

NOTE: I received a free ARC of this title from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.

Really cute book about living in India and a quick search and find book. Does give basic introductions and words for kids to learn about a different country.

This is a brightly illustrated children's book for young children, told in rhyme. Kids will be introduced to various parts of Indian culture such as yoga, Bollywood, chai, Ganesh, the ruins of Ranthambore, the Holi festival, landmarks, holidays, foods, etc. This would be a great introduction for young children who are doing country studies or who will be visiting India.

I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for the purpose of review.
