Summary
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
Summary
Presents a Hindi word or expression for each letter of the English alphabet, from "akaash," the sky, to "zukhaam," a cold, and briefly explains in rhyming text what it means to Indian children
