Our customer reviews
Through this book, we have started to condition our kids about our visit to Bhutan. We are all now very excited. The vibrant colors, the exquisite illustrations make us want to go to Bhutan sooner! This is not however, a comprehensive guide to Bhutan. It is more a metamorphic story about Bhutan and Buddhism. A lot of points for discussion with kids. However, it is a bit expensive for its price as we got the hardback copy. No regrets though, good value for money.show moreby Leng Demirkol
