"Let's Celebrate Diwali" Written By Anjali Joshi. Illustrated by Tim Palin. Published by Mascot Books. Distributed by Bharat Babies. I mean really, who doesn't love a good party? A show and tell circle time at school proves to be level ground for several different children, of different religious backgrounds, who all celebrate Diwali. Diwali is a Festival of Lights which celebrates prosperity and marks the fiscal year in India. A very sweet and fun story about friendship, inclusiveness, diversity, education and kindness. A perfectly lovely book for ages 4-8. The illustrations are bright, playful and engaging.
This book is awesome! It uses the backdrop of a show and tell at school to discuss the Diwali traditions and stories of Buddhist, Sikh, Hindu and Jain children in the class. In doing so, it also subtley raises the issue of being nervous to share your own cultural differences, and how wonderful it feels to find similarities and celebrate our differences with others. I also love that characters who aren't of Indian descent are named and featured in the book-- their teacher, Miss Lo, and their friends Anna and Jordan. As with all of the Bharat Babies books, the illustrations are beautiful, the stories are engaging and the characters are highly relatable.
