My first book of Hindi words

2016

by Rina Singh and Pharidā Jāmāna

Organized as an ABC rhyming book, My First Book of Hindi Words incorporates common Hindi words into charming English-language rhymes, beginning with: "A is for akash. A sky so blue where little birds fly and big planes, too," and on through "Z is for zukhaam. Achoo! I sneeze. I must have a cold. Mama, hug me please!" Full-color pictures illustrate each word and allow even very young readers to make their first foray into India's official language. A glossary at the end makes it easy for readers--including parents and teachers--to review what they've learned
