My First Book of Hindi Words introduces the Hindi language to preschool children in a gentle, playful way using the familiar ABC English Alphabet. The ABC structure provides a framework that encourages fun and natural learning. The everyday Hindi works presented in this book include many that have particular significance in Indian culture. The vivid illustrations give kids a glimpse of Indian life and to show how, despite cultural differences, kids the world over have a lot in common.
Linguistic and cultural notes are added to enhance the kids' adventure in a land that's modern yet filled with beautiful traditions. And kids will love the wonderful Hindi family who will take them from page to colorful page.
