LAUGHING TOGETHER (Stories, Riddles and Proverbs from Asia and the Pacific)
Description
About the Book:

This is a novel attempt, under the aegis of UNESCO, at developing books for Asian children by Asian authors. To have children in Korea share their fantasies with their counterparts in Sri Lanka is probably no mean achievement. And when Indian and Pakistani editors work as part of a team to build a list for children in the twenty odd countries of the continent we inhabit, it's a great new beginning. The many worlds from Tehran to Tokyo intermingle to give colour to words that children across the continent, if not the world, would love to read. These books are steps for bridging minds and creating a common heritage for this vast continent. This is the very best of Asia today.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
