The Good Indian Child’s Guide to Eating Mangoes – Book Review

‘The Good Indian Child’s Guide to Eating Mangoes’ by Natasha Sharma is a funny, tongue in cheek look at the love India has for mangoes and how there is no “right” way to eat them! The text has been brought to life with illustrations which are simple yet witty.
The book is informative as it teaches readers about the history of mangoes in India and also tells them about the different varieties of mangoes available in the country. By using the elders of the family as the ones sharing the information, the author has given readers characters they’re familiar with and can relate to.

The Good Indian Child’s Guide series by Natasha Sharma covers subjects which are considered quintessentially Indian and finds funny and engaging ways to teach readers about them. This book is recommended for children looking for a light, non-narrative based book, which is fun and breezy to read through. The language is simple and easy to understand. What is especially interesting about the book is that it can be read across ages as it is informative without being weighed down by too much information. This book has a wonderful balance which has been struck between author and illustrator, as the book would be nothing without its amazing drawings!
