India in the Heart, World on the Mind

I think this is worth checking out!


After all, a fun activity book is always a winner with kids!

The World Tour Mystery by Manjula Padmanabhan (Tulika Books, 2011)

"As the idea of the Monuments book continued to twitch and grow inside my mind, I and Tulika began to see that difference/sameness are a really important part of traveling too. After all, people in other countries look different and have unique local costumes, yet -- as we see in the book -- tourists look the same wherever they go! When we line up to board an aircraft, we see hundreds of people, some young, some old, some funny, some strange: yet for all the differences, we can also see so much that's the same: we all drink water, for instance; little babies of all nationalities scream in the same language; everyone looks grumpy if there's a long queue for the toilet."

I wish I could visit. :o( :o( :o(

P.S. The cover of The World Tour Mystery reminds me of the banner for this blog. Heeheehee.

We'd love to see you curled up with Tulika books here in our new bookstore Tarie :) And yes I see the resemblance to the blog banner too! :D
