The Holi festival from a child's point of view

This is a great book for people who celebrate the Hindu festival of Holi. It's also a great book for people who don't celebrate it. And it's a really great book for people who haven't even heard of it! The action follows sister and brother Chintoo and Mintoo as they prepare for Holi, gathering flowers to turn into bright powders for the spring festival of colors. Illustrated in the cutest cartoony style by Vashti Harrison (Little leaders: bold women in black history), it definitely lives up to its title -- each page is bursting with vivid hues and excitement for what is to come. This is either a wonderful new book to be shared with your children as you celebrate the holiday, or a perfect way to introduce your family to the cherished tradition of another culture.
