From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-This fine title introduces snippets of the culture, religions, and lifestyles of the people of India. Organized alphabetically, it combines a short paragraph that explains a word having to do with some aspect of Indian life, accompanied by a full-color photograph. Das states in his introductory note that he is from Orissa in eastern India and that "the words and images in this book reflect the India I know and love." The explanations are well written and give a clear definition of the terms under discussion. For the most part, the selected words are well chosen. Only occasionally is it apparent that the demands of the alphabet have led to forced word choice. The excellent-quality photographs are equally well selected, clarifying the information in the paragraph. The author describes the continent as having surprising contrasts, and indeed several do emerge within the A-Z format. There are many number of fine books on India for young people, most of them offering a broader scope. Collections supporting a study of the country, however, will definitely want to add this attractive offering.
