Title: Rani saves Diwali
Author: Anita Badhwar
Book type: Paperback
Age group: 2-5 years
With the festival season in full swing, the kids and myself were delighted to receive ‘Rani saves Diwali’.
Diwali happens to be my favorite festival and makes me nostalgic about the way we used to celebrate as children every year.
Rani Saves Diwali is about a princess called Rani and her pet parrot Hari, who wake up one day to the news that no preparations have been made for Diwali!
It goes on to tell how they manage to salvage the situation, with the key elements of Diwali celebrations intertwined with it.
The illustrations are simple and colorful.
The Hindi origin words have a short explanation as well eg rangoli which is very helpful for both Hindi and English speaking children.
At the end of the book is a write-up explaining what Diwali the festival is all about.
All in all, it’s a nice book for 2-5 year olds who want to know what Diwali is, with a sweet story going along with it.
Children who are not well versed with Indian customs and Hindi language will find this book quite useful too.
