Book Review: A Day in the Life of a Hindu Kid

Book Review: A Day in the Life of a Hindu Kid May 22, 2017

Author Milind Makwana sent me a copy of his book A Day in the Life of a Hindu Kid to review. I’m so delighted to have a copy for Garrick Ravi. It is a very sweet book about two siblings who are American-born Hindus. It goes through their day leading readers through prayers and customs.

The prayers are in devanagari script, transliteration, and English translation.

The background scenes have lots of nice Indian culture touches and the illustrations are cute. The whole book has a lovely message that is supported throughout the words and illustrations.

I love that at bedtime the dad reads this very same book to the little girl! Very meta.

At the back there are also activities like coloring and crosswords.

I love to discover new books and resources to help support and teach Hindu values and lifestyle for Hindu kids growing up in the west!

    Thank you so much Ambaa Choate for reviewing the book. Glad that you and Garrick Ravi liked it.

  • Julia

    thanks for sharing about this book. Will this be good for 7 year old ?

    • Ambaa

      I think it would be great for a 7 year old. Garrick is definitely too young for it yet!

      • Julia

        thanks so much for your response.

  • Salma Dinani

    Sounds like a good cultural book for kids.

    i have been looking for a similar book for my 5 year old. Will check it out. Does it have anything about the hindu god “Hanuman”? – my son loves Hanuman.
