A Children's History of India

1 MP3-CD. 12 hrs. Brilliance. Jan. 2017. $9.99. ISBN 9781536682953.
Gr 3–7—Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in ancient India? Or how the British ended up controlling this vast land? Gupta's book encourages middle greaders to learn about India's history and to explore more with "to do" activities and websites for additional information. This book is not easily read straight through, and the audiobook is no exception. Although Manisha Sethi narrates beautifully, the work is not conducive to a cover-to-cover reading approach. Also, the audiobook does not include any of the illustrations available with the printed work.
VERDICT A fine supplemental addition to an elementary or public library collection.
