Cultures of the World: Nepal
This book is appropriate for 4-7 grade levels. It can be used within the classroom in order to learn about others cultures and be able to compare it with ours. This book gives a wide idea about the culture of Nepal including its geography, history, government, economy, environment, lifestyle, religion, language, arts, leisure, festivals, and food. This book has a positive impact on readers because they realize that each ethnicity has a rich culture. Moreover, it has a high social value because it teaches people to value their cultures and learn about others. This is a thorough book, so I could not find any shortcomings.
