Exploring the World with Benny, Week 4

Our topics for week 4 were India, mongooses, and cobras. There are fewer books listed under India because the Robi Dobi book is actually a short chapter book, so it took several days to read at a pace of only one or two chapters a day. I did look for other books on mongooses or cobras but was unable to find anything at our library. It turned out not to matter because Benny loved Rikki-Tikki-Tavi so much we read it over and over again.
