https://www.learning-hindi.com - Very helpful when first starting. Go through their eBook but more than anything the best thing is their Google Drive folder. They have heaps of children's books on there, some with audio, and many with the English translation as well.

My pleasure and thanks for the Lingot; please also see the video links I posted here yesterday in addition to the book links you requested; specifically the two links by Mother Tongue specific to the Hindi alphabet/Devanagari script you requested in your original post; re: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/32835236

You can see in these two links from my original video post above how comprehensive (and fun) both "The Sound of Sanskrit" & "Sounding and Seeing the Consonants" series is.

@asaselta, the Sanskrit Alphabet Tutor linked below is another great resource that I discovered recently which comes very highly recommended for learning the Hindi alphabet ( वर्णमाला ) & Devanagari ( देवनागरी ) script. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and this one is free and easily accessible whereas the Mother Tongue series requires a premium login or trial account.

Note: Place of articulation map included for each letter.

Also highly recommended are the following resources:
