Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
Holidays are days that we set aside to celebrate something special. Some holidays celebrate people, some remind us to be grateful, and some are days for reflection. Celebrated in the fall, Diwali is a Hindu holiday that is about reflection, a reminder that good triumphs over evil. Candles are lit as they were many years ago to show princess Sita her way home after Prince Rama saved her from the evil King Ravana. Because of the candles Diwali is also known as the Festival of Lights. This Spanish version of Diwali teaches children how other cultures celebrate their holidays. Readers will love seeing kids their age celebrating as they do, enjoying a special meal or watching a parade, and will learn that though we may celebrate different holidays we all celebrate in much the same way. This book is part of the "Holidays and Festivals" series that increases the reader's awareness of the world around them by introducing them to a variety of celebrations from all cultures.
