Welcome to Nepal! In this bright, exciting book, young readers will travel to this amazing country without ever leaving their homes or classrooms. During their journey, they will learn all about Nepal's land, history, cities, language, food, and more! This 32-page book features controlled text with age-appropriate vocabulary and simple sentence construction. The engaging text, bold design, and stunning photos are sure to capture children's interest.
The text is simple enough for young, beginner readers and short enough not to scare away more reluctant ones. Important facts are sprinkled among more fun ones, which not only holds readers' interest, but also allows the country to be presented in a diversity of ways. Everything from food to history to sports and, of course, Mount Everest are touched upon.
The bright photographs allow readers to get a glimpse at everyday life and the sights in Nepal. Little bubbles with extra tidbits help express the images in the photographs. There are also pronunciation helps with some of the more difficult words.
At the end of the book, there's a glossary, index and website address, where readers can go to find more information.
It's a simple book packed with first bits of interesting facts, so kids can get their first glimpses at the country and culture.
