A Village Is A Busy Place!
This activity book in the Bengal Patua style of scroll painting depicts the everyday world of the Santhal people, who are amongst India’s largest indigenous communities.
Fold by colourful fold, the scroll opens out into a gorgeous panorama of village life, teeming with people, animals and activities. Accompanying text—along with careful pointers and questions—encourages the child to discover details, make connections, and set off on an exploration of village life.
