A dazzling board book that introduces little ones to the Indian festival of Diwali through a selection of brilliant sights and sounds.
Every year in October or November people come together to celebrate Diwali.
Diwali is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. The stories woven into the festival of Diwali celebrate the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, and people celebrate this festival of lights by lighting clay lamps and candles, sharing sweets, exchanging gifts, offering prayers to gods and goddesses and watching fireworks. Introduce your little one to the awe of this brilliant festival through dazzling photographs and Singh's lyrical prose.
Rina Singh has published several critically acclaimed books for children inspired by her Indian Canadian heritage, including Diwali Lights, Holi Colors and Diwali: A Festival of Lights, which was nominated for the Red Cedar Award, and Grandmother School which won the 2021 Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize. Rina lives in Toronto.
