Summary
"India has its very own Hollywood--the rhyming Bollywood! The thousands of Bollywood films that are released every year put the songs, dances, and colors of India in the spotlight. Upper-elementary students are invited to a special viewing of a country with a memorable flavor. This title includes: sidebars, photo labels, captions, detailed maps, world maps, status bars, and details on population, exports, size, currency, and more!"
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Country Profiles series nicely balances its scope and depth of information for middle-grade researchers. This title begins with a view of India's iconic Taj Mahal before presenting the country's geographic location on a large, boldly colored map. From there, readers will become acquainted with India's landscape and climate, wildlife, people, and culture. The latter is the most interesting, as it addresses language, religion, pastimes, diet, traditional family units and marriage practices, and discrimination born of a declining caste system. Small paragraphs of reader-friendly text accompany clear photo illustrations (many with fast-fact sidebars) and helpful infographics. A time line and two-page spread of India Facts provide a visual overview of significant historical events and cultural notes. Well organized and comprehensive, this is an inviting starting point for school reports.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"
