“Hinduism For Kids: Beliefs And Practices” by Author Shalu Sharma is truly a brilliant piece of literature that I thoroughly enjoyed with my daughter who is studying the roots of Hinduism for one of her classes in school. In short, this is a perfect guide for anyone looking to develop a solid foundation on Hinduism. The book is perfectly formatted which makes it easy to reference back and forth on your kindle. The illustrations and pictures including the map inside helps to pin point certain origins in India where the roots of the Hindu Beliefs and Practices started.  In closing this is truly a remarkable book that both parents and children can enjoy many times over. It is written in a fast paced manner will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Hindu beliefs. 5 Stars for Author Shalu Sharma and can not wait to see what she comes up with next.
