Welcome to our list of favorite Diwali books! This holiday was a favorite of mine to research because of the colors involved with Diwali, making the illustrations in every book so fun! Here are my top four:
I love how this book is simple and on a child’s level, while still incorporating the Diwali jargon and vocabulary. It is also very inclusive of multiple races, showing that Diwali can be enjoyed by many!
This one is fun because elephants are the main characters that walk kids through what Diwali is, again, on their level.
A princess saving Diwali! Such a fun book with cute illustrations.
Binny is trying to tell her class about her favorite holiday, Diwali. And her peers love it!
