Each autumn we gather with our friends and family and light our brightest lanterns. It’s time for Diwali, the festival of lights! In this lovely board book with illustrations from Archana Sreenivasan, readers learn that the five days of Diwali are a time to pray for a bountiful season, celebrate the special bonds between siblings, and rejoice in the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.
Diwali is a Hindu festival that is mostly celebrated in India. Nepal celebrates its own version of Diwali, called Tihar. Both Tihar and Diwali are festivals of light, and celebrate the triumph of good over evil. This year, Diwali and Tihar are celebrated from November 4th-November 9th.
