"Lights, camera, Diwali! helps children gain a better understanding of Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. Through this engaging story, children learn how Indian-American families celebrated Diwali in their homes. Dia receives a camera as a Diwali gift and uses it to capture her memories of this special day. She takes photos of her family decorating clay lamps, creating unique rangoli designs, preparing sweets called ladoos, setting off firecrackers and more! This captivating story also helps children learn about why Diwali is celebrated. While Dia explores the rituals of Diwali with her camera, children learn about a Prince named Rama who was exiled into a forest for 14 years. After fighting off a demon, he is welcomed back into his city with a "row of lights". Children learn about how Diwali teaches us that light will overcome darkness and good will conquer evil."-- provided by publisher.
