As a mother raising a global citizen I am excited to review Let's Celebrate Holi!
Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, also known as the "festival of colours" or the "festival of love", The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.
The children's book from authors and founders of the Bollywood Groove company Vivek and Ajanta have a new book Let's Celebrate Holi! You can find their book at Bolly Groove.
Let's Celebrate Holi! takes children into the celebration of Holi with its colorful, and beautiful Indian tradition. I love how this book makes it easy for children to understand the meaning of the festival, and that it is not just to simply throw powdered colors on each other. With a helpful pronunciation guide and a map of India it provides the perfect resource to explain in detail how Holi is celebrated in different regions across the country.
If you need a book to teach children about Holi then you need to have this in your home library. Although this book is geared for children ages 3-7, my 8 year old thoroughly enjoyed it.
