Great photography, Great message! Dec 29 1999
By Susanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Vishaka's Bhagavad-gita for Children has been one of my 11-yr. old's favorite books since we first purchased it 3 years ago. Kids of almost any age can appreciate the brightly-colored, mind-capturing illustrations/photographs, and the spiritual message of the Bhagavad-gita is presented at just the right reading level for elementary-grade readers to understand. All in all, the presentation is very attractive and will appeal to any child, anywhere. This book provides a great yet subtle way to introduce good values and principles of good character into the minds of our children, as well as a healthy respect for the concept of a supreme, loving God.

By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Our Most Dear Friend is an excellent picturebook introduction for young readers to the Bhagavad-gita, the world's oldest religious scripture. This "Song of God" originated about five thousands years ago and is still read and revered by 850 million Hindus around the world. Highly recommended for school and community multicultural picturebook collections. Our Most Dear Friend combines text with beautiful paintings and superb photography.

Core essence of the Gita for children June 1 2013
By Pat P-E - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book itself was a very simplified version of the Gita for children. Many times I discovered that the names Krishna and Christ could be easily interchanged with regard to the message, which to me solidified my belief that at their core, most of the world's religions share a theme of universal love and acceptance.

My kids love it!!! March 28 2013
By Eternal Bliss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have always wanted my kids to have a good spiritual foundation. So I encourage them to read the scriptures from different relegions and cultures. This book is designed in such a way that it would capture every one's attention with great illustrations. This is not a big book which is hard to carry. Only the essence of Bhagavad Gita is described in this book in an amazing way. I noticed that after reading this book, my kids are showing more love towards the whole creation. I just love this book and I recommend this to every body.
