Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shalini Murthy
India, the world's largest democracy, has a cultural heritage dating back thousands of years. Many elements of this rich culture have been transported to the United States by Indian immigrants and incorporated by them into a unique lifestyle. Today, Indian American children form a significant minority group in schools across the country. Understanding the cultural background of these children fosters understanding of the cultural group as a whole. It is in this context that books such as these are important. Using photographs, pictures, sketches and factually accurate information, Shalant introduces the culture of India, describing important holidays, customs, arts and folktales. Also included are child friendly craft activities and recipes originating from the culture. A great addition to any multicultural bookshelf, this volume is also a good reference book for the upper elementary and middle school social studies class.
