Festival of Colors

Written by Surishtha Sehgal and Kabir Sehgal
Illustrated by Vashti Harrison
Published by Beach Lane Books

It’s time for the Indian festival of Holi, a celebration of the start of spring, of new beginnings, and of good over evil. Friends, families, and neighbors wear white clothing and toss handfuls of brightly colored powders at one another until they’re all completely covered from head to toe!

Young readers will love following the young siblings gathering flowers to make the colorful powders for the big day until—poof!—it’s time for the fun to begin.
