Namaste Jaipur is the second of a 6part children’s book series that brings alive the richness and color of the major cities of India. The poetic text and colorful imagery is a delight to share with children ages 3-8 years old from around the world who are interested in and/or connected to India.
Namaste Jaipur is the first children’s book on one of India’s most colorful and historical cities, Jaipur. The 44-page book brings the charming city alive through characters, colors and couplets. Children will relate to endearing characters as they travel from historic monuments to royal parks to science museums to the desert to capture the daily life of a Rajasthani. Through the adventure, children will eat jalebis in the old town, dance ghoomar in the Thar Desert, and see a polo match. Ideal for children under 10 years old, the lyrical couplets will leave your child asking to read the book one more time! Open the book and you will travel to the Great Thar Desert on a bumpy camel ride. We are off to see the pink city of Jaipur, Rajasthan’s pride.
