"Who would have thought that going to school in India could be such fun?
Riding in a phat phat in rural Gujarat; pulled in a rickshaw in Kolkata or a bullock cart in
Maharashtra; driven by friendly soldiers in an army truck in Kargil; crossing a rope bridge in
Nagaland; floating in vallams in Kerala; whirling across a raging river on an iron rope swing in
Ladakh—every day millions of children go to school in India in a million different ways. By bus,
by boat, on foot, even in wheelchairs. Going to School in India is a celebration of this diversity,
showing us children from every walk of life in their wildly different classrooms. It shows us what
they share; and whether they study in a tent in the middle of a mud desert, or in a school on wheels,
or in the dark, it shows us that school is fun.
Wonderfully narrated and gorgeously illustrated, Going to School will transport you and your child
into the real India."
