I was doing a presentation on winter festivals for the adolescents at my work. I found this book on Diwali that gave me the basic information for the presentation, plus gave them a nice reference to look at afterwards. Since this was time based, the easy reading and numerous pictures were great. It also gave them a quick reference to finding more information if they needed it. Very nice, and I got several more in the series for other winter festivals.
  • Mr.Twister
As all of the National Geographic Holidays books, Excellent!
  • Hystana
Great book to explain this celebration to children. Wonderful photos. Great Price.

This series of books are awesome! I ordered the hardcover version and it is beautiful! The pages have wonderful pictures as you would expect from National Geographic. They also have bigger words and smaller paragraphs. You can read the bigger words and learn about the topic at hand or read the smaller paragraph and get more information. I bought many of these for my classroom and use them around every holiday to teach my first grade students. My kids like to look at the pictures but most cannot read the small paragraphs independently. After purchasing one of these books, I went on Amazon and bought as many as I could. They are well worth the money spent!

This book has wonderful pictures of Diwali. The colored pictures aided me to present the festivities of Diwali to pre-schoolers.

I love this little handbook. It briefly outlines India's festival, Diwali, indicating how it is celebrated, sometimes in one location or another. This subtly shows how how a holiday, any holiday can have a core theme,while at the same time embellishing the core from one location to another. It goes so well with my little novel, "The Lights of Diwali."
Excellent book. Great images. Perfect intro for 1st and 2nd grade readers.
