Description - Prita Goes to India by Prodeepta Das
Following on from the success of the highly-acclaimed Child's Day series, here is the first in a unique series of photographic information books, told in the first person, which accompany children who have grown up away from their family's homeland, and are now visiting it for the first time. The unfamiliar food, clothing, and customs of another country are seen from a fresh, exciting perspective. With stunning photographs and a bright, child-friendly design, this informative, fun series is very relevant to today's world in which so many people have moved away from their original culture to live elsewhere. PRITA GOES TO INDIA Seven year-old Prita has come India for the first time, with her parents and her elder sister, to visit their many relatives. She is fascinated by everything, from the Taj Mahal to the village shrines, from delicious green coconuts to market stalls filled with savoury snacks - but above all, by the way of life lived by her relatives. Some of it is like her life at home - but much of it is very different.
