Amma, Tell Me About Holi
Tell your children about Holi, the Indian Festival of Colours, by reading this beautiful children's picture book to them, written in rhyme with captivating illustrations. For ages 2 to 8.
Siblings Klaka and Kiki gather with their friends and family to celebrate this spring festival which symbolises new beginnings, friendships, forgiveness, and, of course, a license to being naughty and playing pranks! At the end of the day as Amma tucks the brothers in bed, she answers their countless questions - Why do we colour one another on Holi, where does Holi get its name from? Why do we light a fire the night before Holi?
Come let's hear the magical story,
Of Holi in all its vibrant glory.
As told to Klaka, an eager little boy,
By his Amma, with dollops of joy.
First, a tale of colors and childhood fun:
Naughty Krishna and Radha, his loved one.
Next, an evil king who thought he was God,
His son Prahlad refused to accept the fraud.
He threatened his own son, who did not think him divine.
But against the evil king, faith and miracles did align.
A story of faith, devotion and love.
Passed down to children, from generations above...
