The Festival of Lights is nearly here! Join Ariana and her family during their spectacular celebration of Diwali.
Ariana can’t wait to participate in all of her favorite holiday traditions: making delicious sweets, lighting diyas around the house, and the rangoli competition! As long as her younger brother, Rafi, doesn’t ruin everything with his clumsiness, this could be the best Diwali ever.
With vibrant imagery, joyous text, and an important lesson about celebrating the people you love for who they are (especially silly younger brothers!), this lovely picture book is perfect for a family read aloud.
