Jaunty rhymes and warm, generous family activities mark the beginning of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, in this picture book that’s designed to fill young eyes with wonder. Children will learn about the holiday’s exchanges of sweets and gifts––and about helping out neighbors––as the family decorates, dresses up, donates clothes, and goes out into the lit-up night to welcome the new year. Bright colors and happy expressions round out the celebration.
