Favorable: Great in-depth and interesting facts of India. Inside the covers of this book is a time line of Indian History from 3000 B.C. until 2006 A.D. Valuable maps, easy-to-understand language, and color photos make this a wonderful educational tool. The book focuses on geography, people and culture, history, government and economy, and nature to give the young learner a wide scope of India. Insightful, it is a book for the middle school grades and may be useful for a book report. Page fifty-two has valuable information on how the Indian government works. This is a valuable and worthwhile resource book.
