Follow Me Around India
Even though it is only about one-third as big as the United States, India is the second most populated country in the world. With the help of a local named Harisha, readers will get an up-close look at this beautiful country and see how its people live. They will also learn about India's history and get an insider's view of local traditions, culture, and much more.
