In The News

"This book’s greatest strength is its recognition of the fact that Hindu families of various backgrounds celebrate Diwali in different ways, clarifying that the activities in the story are only a sample of traditions that families practice during this holiday. The pictures are bright and cheery, and the language is clear and easy to read. A buoyant introduction to Diwali that acknowledges the diversity of Hindu traditions." —Kirkus Reviews
