We received this book to give an honest review.
Though I did like how the pictures were illustrated, and the moral of the story. I feel as though it lacked something that I can not put my hand on exactly. Me and K finished this book up about three days ago and I have been thinking on how to write this review up. Some of the words were hard to pronounce, and I understand that since this is a story set in India it would have names from there. K didn't really understand the full meaning of the tree

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

When I first read the synopsis of Bargad, I thought it would be a good book to read to my spawn (He's also a lover of books), so I was quick to agree to a review.

Right away, he was impressed by the pictures, they helped keep him immersed in the story.

It was a sweet story with a great message - but the way it was told made it an awkward read. I understand it was a story from another country, but it would have been nice to have a pronunciation

I have never reviewed a children's book before now it is a little bit different for me. Bargad is a very thought provoking. The story is about a Banyan tree that sits in the middle of the mayors way of progress for the town so he want's Bargad removed. Only to realize later that he maybe wrong about Bargad and how helpful of tree he really is. I found Bargad to be a very heart warming story with some very good lessons to be learned from. I hope you will go pick up a copy and sit and read Bargad ...more

While I appreciate the cultural value of this story and its significance, I don't know that many children will get it. The text has numerous words that will need further explanation for the child as well as pronunciation help. The illustrations are nice, in a homemade sense. Overall it is a nice book just lacking in polish and professionalism.
