Tiny Travelers India Treasure Quest
Inspire children to fall in love with the world they live in with Tiny Travelers!
The Tiny Travelers “Treasure Quest” Series takes its readers on a fun-filled journey to discover what makes each country special with search-and-find features on every spread.
In Tiny Travelers India Treasure Quest, readers journey from the magical Taj Mahal to fabulous Bollywood. From the beautiful festival of color Holi, to the incredible Himalayas, Tiny Travelers will enjoy getting closer to Indian culture, making magical discoveries along the way.
Each illustrated spread invites children to discover hidden "treasures" - icons, animals, statues, instruments and more - that make up incredible India.
“Most kids today are told that it’s a small world, when in fact it’s a really big world,” says Encantos CEO and Tiny Travelers creator and author Steven Wolfe Pereira. “And because the world is so big, there are many countries, cities, and cultures that have yet to be discovered and explored by kids. We created Tiny Travelers to foster curiosity, empathy, and understanding by learning what makes people and places so special.”

"This longer board book is in essence a travel guide for toddlers. Rhyming text introduces India by explaining the background of several national monuments and holidays, Bollywood and cricket. Sidebars shaped like tickets offer other facts and words in Hindi, and each page opening has a (extremely easy) seek and find component. What appears to be colorful digital art shows happy, round faced folks from India with light brown skin enjoying all of the country’s pleasures and activities. Readers are invited to join the Tiny Travelers Club on line, and to sign up to receive free stickers to affix to the stamp shapes in the book. A serviceable title for families of toddlers making their first trip to India." —Stephanie Tournas, Youth Services Book Review

"The newest addition to the @gotinytravelers series is out today! My kids loved learning more about India and spotting things that were familiar to them. With hidden images on each page, engaging illustrations and design, and interesting facts spread throughout, this series is perfect for introducing new countries to a range of ages. The hidden images are easy to find and the pages are thick and sturdy which makes it ideal for young children, but my almost 7 year old loves reading them just as much. One thing I especially appreciate is that each book in the series has had an expert from the featured country lending their input to maintain cultural authenticity. We are excited to see that there are many more countries to come for this series! Which county would you love to see featured in a series like this?" —Stephanie Price, Because My Mother Read
