Tour the diverse regions of an incredible country in a vivid, joyful, and visually stunning introduction to the people, places, flora, and fauna of India.

Watch elephants bathing from a houseboat in Kerala, marvel at ancient cave paintings in Bhimbetka, wander Delhi’s bustling streets, and ride a train through the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. In spread after colorful spread, India’s breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and cultural splendor leap to life on the page, framed by the story of a little girl named Thara and her grandmother. In a carved wooden trunk, Nanijee keeps mementos collected from all over India, each with a story to tell. Readers can follow along page by page with Thara or dip in at any point to discover something new about India’s many and varied regions—from vibrant religious festivals, food, and crafts to sports and wildlife to Bollywood and a hidden sculpture garden filled with life-size figures. A warm, welcoming tone and exquisitely patterned endpapers help make this an intimate keepsake to pore over and treasure. A companion book to the award-winning Africa, Amazing Africa by Atinuke and Mouni Feddag, this is narrative nonfiction at its finest.

An informative book for young readers, My Incredible India tells the story of India's heritage through the eyes of Thara and her grandmother. Author Jasbinder Bilan covers a wide range of topics about India, including the landscapes and traditions of the country. I especially loved the pages dedicated to food and holidays like Diwali.

This information is accompanied by some of the most visually stunning illustrations. The illustrator uses vibrant colors that capture the culture of India and complement the text information. Although I love the illustrations in this book, I think there could have been some photographs of India sprinkled throughout to give readers a first-hand look at the country. The author did include a list of resources at the end of the book to learn more about India and all of those websites do show pictures of India

This book is perfect for young readers who want to learn more about other countries and cultures.
