A Diwali Story
Jonny Zucker, Illustrated by Jan Barger Cohen - All books by this author

Festival Time - All books in this series

Diwali is the Hindu five-day festival of lights that welcomes in the lunar new year. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the dark fortnight of the Hindu month of Ashwin, or Aasho, which occurs in October or November, depending on the lunar calendar. During the festival, all exchange gifts of sweets, light candles, and attend elaborate fireworks displays. The holiday is marked by many lights displayed in homes and businesses. Festival Time books depict the activities of typical families, as Mom, Dad, and children celebrate holidays that have special religious or cultural significance for them. Cheerfully attractive color illustrations supplement a simply-told story of the holiday’s origins and a description of the festivities that are part of that holiday. Festival Time books can be read aloud to toddlers, but are easy enough for many first and second graders to read to themselves. Each book’s final two-page spread is written mainly for parents, offering suggestions for ways to communicate the holiday’s meaning to kids. (Ages 3–7)
