- Starts with sharing a perfect, happy & festive Diwali day to highlight the celebrations.
- Then recaps the Ramayana in about 9 pages & 14 short paragraphs to share the reason for the celebration.
- Finally ends with a story about Goddess Lakshmi, which has a beautiful moral that highlights the importance of honesty & hard work for kids.
All in all: This book is a perfect little package that celebrates the festival, shares the reason behind the festivities - and all with the help of FANTASTIC ILLUSTRATIONS!!

Unfortunately the writing is stilted with no rhythm and poor rhymes. The illustrations aren't my favourite either- on one page the child's eye is Picasso-like and sits halfway off his face. I do like the patterns though.
I was really hoping it would be about keeping homes clean and decorating with rangoli, helping those less fortunate and making sweets and lighting Diyas and crackers (non noisy ones)
