A beautiful celebration of Diwali for young children.
Binny is excited to talk to her class about her favorite holiday.
But she struggles to find the words.
Taking a deep breath, she tells them about the fireworks,
the delicious pedras and jalebis,
and the clay lamps called diyas
... there are so many wonders to see!
Her favourite holiday is the Hindu festival of lights
called Diwali, and now that they know all
about it, all her friends love it too!
This brilliant picture book is a wonderful
introduction to Diwali for little ones, wrapped within a
story of sharing and acceptance.
