Summary
EARLY LEARNING: ABC BOOKS / ALPHABET BOOKS. "My First Book of Hindi Words" is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Hindi language and Indian culture through everyday words. The words profiled in this book are all commonly used in the Hindi language and are both informative and fun for English-speaking children to learn. The goals of "My First Book of Hindi Words" are multiple: to familiarisse children with the sounds and structure of Hindi speech; to introduce core elements of Indian culture; to illustrate the ways in which languages differ in their treatment of everyday sounds; and to show how, through cultural importation, a single word can be shared between languages. Both teachers and parents will welcome the book's cultural and linguistic notes, and appreciate how the book is organised in a familiar ABC structure. Each word is presented in Devanagari (Hindi script) and English. Ages 0+
