"Count Your Way through. . ." is a wonderful series, exposing children to the phoenetic sounds and cultures of other lands. "Count Your Way through India" is especially valuable since Hindi uses a different script than do most European languages. I believe there are two major errors in this book, and one omission. The introduction tells readers that both Hindi and Sanskrit use the same alphabet, or script, but does not give its name: the "Deva Nagri" script. This is, of course, merely a point of information, but it seems it would be a valuable piece of knowledge. The first error I would like to note is perhaps not very serious: numerals do not have a line drawn over their tops as do alphabet letters. Although the author (illustrator?) is correct in writing out the WORD for each number with a line drawn over the letters, this is not how numerals are written. The second error is much more serious: The number 8 is written phonetically in English incorrectly. It is pronounced "ot" as in "pot" or "hot." There is no "r" sound in the pronunciation of the number. The Hindi word for "ot" is correctly spelled in the Deva Nagri script, but the transliteration is incorrect. I can only assume someone from Boston did the transliteration!! Overall, though, this is a wonderful introduction to the world's cultures, and I appreciate very much being able to have this book in my school's library.

Format: Paperback
..for tolerating (and paying for) such nonsense content in a book on India when there are so many Indian professionals living in the US now. According to this book the number eight in Hindi is supposed to be "Art" !!! Is this a joke about American accent from a certain region? It would have been to me, if I hadn't already paid for the book. Why do these publishers still get this kind of tourist-turned-India-experts to write and illustrate these books when the world today is supposedly so inter-connected and all? It is obviously also the age of publishers not caring a bit about what they sell as long as they have the money coming in.
