Desh-Videsh Media Group announces the release of children’s book We love Diwali
Sunrise, Fla., December 6, 2017: Desh-Videsh Media Group announces the release of children’s book We love Diwali, which takes readers on a journey of how Hindu, Jain, and Sikh families living in America come together to celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights.
This is the first in an educational series of books for children on Hindu religion and culture. The primary goal of the series is to share knowledge of the Hindu religion, traditions, and culture of children living all over the world.
Written by Raj Shah, We love Diwali takes you inside the homes of families living in America, where children of diverse faiths celebrate Diwali together. In their own words, the children take turns explaining the different customs and traditions celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs during this multi-day festival. The children gather together to participate in a Diwali pooja and are especially excited because this is one day when they perform the rituals rather than their parents! Of course, no Indian festival is complete without delicious food, so the children end the day by eating Diwali mithai (sweets) and by lighting fireworks.
The book explains the significance of Diwali in simple language and includes colorful, bold pictures making the text easier for children to understand. The book comes in three languages: English, Hindi and Gujarati.
We love Diwali is registered with the American Wholesale Book Company, Library of congress, Baker & Taylor, Follett Library Resources and Ingram. The book is available online at amazon.com, amazon.in, and deshvideshpublishing.com.
