My First Book of Hindi Words introduces the Hindi language to preschool children in a gentle, playful way using the English alphabet.

The familiar ABC rhyming structure provides a framework that encourages fun and easy learning from A-Z. A welcoming Indian family introduces everyday Hindi words, including many that have special significance in Indian culture. The vivid illustrations give kids a glimpse of Indian life and show how, despite cultural differences, kids the world over have a lot in common.

Linguistic and cultural notes are added to enhance a child's experience and understanding, and to help parents, librarians and educators bring the story to life.
