    Abstract:
    A book designed for children with attractive illustrations, this volume brings out the spirit of India through the recounting of an incident that happened in India; where a boy—not wealthy of resources—returns a wallet he found and cannot even think of accepting a reward for his good act. Awarded the ‘Mom’s Choice Best Educational Picture Book’, ‘Independent Publisher Outstanding Books of the Year’, ‘Benjamin Franklin Multicultural Silver’, and ‘The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval’, this book explains different Indian traditions and values through a trip to Rajasthan. With a short glossary and a guide for making torans, Indian festoons, this book is a keepsake that would remind all to listen to ‘the silent voice within each of us that prompts us to do what is right’ (2).
