Format: Paperback
This book teaches about the Hindu events, customs and celebrations which are celebrated by Hindu children. Festivals such as Divali and Holi, and personal customs such as Raksha Bandhan are explored through the use of religious articles, books, buildings, symbols, and food.

This book has excerpts from eight-year-old Dhara's diary so we can see what it's like to be at each event. There are lots of photographs to visually explain the concepts and the festivals and customs.
Hindus believe there is only one God. They have lots of holy books, such as the Vedas. Every day they worship in their homes, but many also go to the mandir (temple) to worship.

This book explains and provides a festival calendar. It also has a glossary so that if you are unfamiliar with a word you can look it up.

This book series written for grades 4 and up and 9 year old and up helps children learn about other cultures and religious so that through knowledge they can be more understanding and have more compassion and allow others religious freedoms.
