Shiva’s Fire – Suzanne Fisher Staples

It’s that time of the year where your kids are probably starting to drive you crazy with being bored. If you have a child around 10 years old, I recommend Shiva’s Fire by Suzanne Fisher Staples. The story of a dancer named Parvati who is training with a dance guru and discovers that she has the gift of music in her blood. It is a basic introduction to Hindu mysticism for young children, though must not be confused with true Hindu culture. Originally published in 1958, this version was re-printed in 2001 and suffers from an amount of cultural appropriation. That said, it is an easy, engaging book for young readers.
