Amma, Tell Me About Diwali
Celebrate Diwali, the Indian festival of lights by reading this wonderful children's picture book to your kids (for ages 2 to 8). Join the two brothers Klaka and Kiki as they light diyas and firecrackers, buy new clothes, and get Amma to answer their countless questions - Why do we celebrate Diwali? Why do we pray to Ganesha and Lakshmi on Diwali? And hear the story of Rama and his homecoming. A perfect book to introduce the stories behind Diwali to your children.
Brilliant firecrackers lighting up the night,
Diyas twinkling like stars - what a sight!
This is Diwali, in all its glory,
As told to little Klaka - a magical story.
First the celebration of Prince Rama and his homecoming,
His victory over Ravana, the evil demon King.
Next a story of Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth
Who rewards her true devotees with fortune and health.
