Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Part of the "Colors of the World" series, this volume falls short of offering the richness and vibrancy of color one expects from the subcontinent. The artwork is attractive, but muted--hardly how one might describe the region. The text refers to colors in the context of religion, seasons, society, and historical monuments. The pronunciation guide also leaves something to be desired. Since Hindi has combination consonants requiring aspiration, and a 'p' closer to Spanish than to the English 'b,' the simple transliteration used is ineffective.
