“Bindu goes on a long trip
Bernadette Mertens-McAllister wrote the book “Bindu goes on a long trip” for her grandchild Tessa.
One day as the author was traveling from Canada to Mexico, she found Bindu in a toy store. The idea came to her to make a book of that long trip that the teddy will have to make to reach the home of little Tessa in Québec. All of the images have been photographed on site while traveling.
This volume is in English with a Spanish translation at the back. There is also a French version with English translation at the back. Both are available at http://www.blurb.com
