Namaste Is a Greeting

We rated this book:


Namaste Is a Greeting isn’t really about anything except the word “Namaste.” There’s no real storyline, just many fragmented ideas and a little girl pulling it all together. The pictures are a little too harsh with the angles and colors, especially since the topic is soft and sweet.

People who have a connection to Indian culture and those who are curious about other cultures will probably enjoy this. It’s very simple and best suited for the youngest audience. Even if you don’t find the book to be amazing, it is interesting how many different meanings and uses a single word can have. There’s not really a word-for-word translation to English, so it kind of takes the whole book to explain.
