"Amma Tell Me" a fantastic Christmas gift for your children
It is written by Bhakti Mathur and stunningly illustrated in vivid, vibrant colours by Maulshree Somani.
It's part of a series of books that charmingly introduces children to the major festivals that play an important part in the Hindu religion.
Although it is aimed, primarily, at Hindu children and their parents it will be widely welcomes by all parents, grandparents and children who like to learn about the world that surrounds them.
The reason why Bhakti began writing the books is interesting. She wanted to buy some books on Hindu festivals for her young children but faced a major struggle in sourcing any. So like a good mum, she decided to start writing her own books.
The books in the series are aimed at children from ages 3 to 9, and are perfect for families and for educators needing material for pupils or students.
This book tells the story of Klaka, his many, many friends, his brother Kiki and his golden-coloured dog, Frodo.
Every night their Amma tucks Klaka, Kiki and Frodo into bed and she reads them a story.
This time Amma tells them about Holi, the Hindu festival of colours.
The book is published by Anjana Publishing at £9.50 each.
(Happy Diwali to all our readers.)
The book is available from our online shop, which you will find here here https://goo.gl/01Utnw.
