Imagine floating a candle down the Ganges River in the five-day-long Hindu festival of lights. Learn the story of the Taj Mahal and its four minarets. As children count their way one-to-ten in the Hindu language, they will take a discovery tour of India. Well-known author Jim Haskins’s text and Liz Brenner Dodson’s brilliant full-color illustrations give readers a taste of India’s rich culture and beauty.
