Product description

An ideal introduction to the celebration of Diwali for children aged 4 - 7 in Foundation Stage and KS1 classes. This book describes the story behind the Diwali festivities and how Hindus, Sikhs and Jains prepare for Diwali. It shows how people around the world decorate their homes with lights and rangoli patterns, and how they end the Diwali celebration with a special day for brothers and sisters. Attractively designed, its simple text and wonderful full-colour photos make this an essential resource in every Early Years setting. 'Did You Know?' boxes highlight interesting and unusual facts about Divali to give further points for children and adults to discuss. And a Hindu calendar shows when the different months are.
