    When I was looking for books which includes Indian cuisine,monuments,festivals for kids, I was surprised that they werent any books until we stumbled upon these beauties.These arent our traditional history books about rulers,independence or battles.It consists of many eyeopener topics all packed into a book.You are in for a fun and insightful riot.We loved Daadu Dolma,Mishki and Pushka and their fun way of exploring India.

    India is known for its varied culture and it comes with lots of festivals. But it's really not easy to illustrate every festival by physically celebrating them just to show them the importance/significance of that festival which would be celebrated for any sort of reason at any particular place of India specifically. Although every festival is celebrated all over the parts of India but still for young kids its a task. Hence, by this book, it gets very easy for me to make my gals understand the im India is known for its varied culture and it comes with lots of festivals. But it's really not easy to illustrate every festival by physically celebrating them just to show them the importance/significance of that festival which would be celebrated for any sort of reason at any particular place of India specifically. Although every festival is celebrated all over the parts of India but still for young kids its a task. Hence, by this book, it gets very easy for me to make my gals understand the importance of our heritage like how it gives you a reason to come together at one roof though you reside in different regions of India. It teaches us bonding and yes very important how Good always wins over Evil although how maybe the powerful evil may be in the end only Good WINS and every festival has its own Saga of the struggle for the joy of victory. Sonia Mehta (always amaze with the writing skill especially for the young ones) has come up with a very pictorial way of explanation of festival which makes this book very interactive and at the end of the day, this book has given me our overall bonding time which I usually miss out catching up on my daily chores and work commitments. Overall this book is engaging, informative, interactive and so well described. A must but for all parents who really want their kids to learn about India's cultural heritage and their history.

    Festivals, the time when we are eager to share our joy, spend time with family and friends. Thrown in all your reasons to enjoy homemade feast, desserts and unwind. India is a fascinating country. It’s the land of diversity. Indians celebrate numerous festivals the entire year. Festivals may be celebrated due to religious reasons, mostly. However, they bring family together and unwind the monotony of life. Festivals also are the reason that keeps us connected with roots, philosophy, and origin. U Festivals, the time when we are eager to share our joy, spend time with family and friends. Thrown in all your reasons to enjoy homemade feast, desserts and unwind. India is a fascinating country. It’s the land of diversity. Indians celebrate numerous festivals the entire year. Festivals may be celebrated due to religious reasons, mostly. However, they bring family together and unwind the monotony of life. Festivals also are the reason that keeps us connected with roots, philosophy, and origin. Upon celebrating these festivals, we are passing our culture to kids. Preserving it. Sonia Mehta has done a commendable job, again. Her series of Discover India with Mishki, Pushka and wise Daadu Dolma is back. In the book “Festivals of India”, she takes readers to celebrations from January to December across the nation. Starting from Lohri to Christmas. Also, there are tribal festivals. The book surely is the fruits of intense research. She revisits the festivals with the stories behind the celebrations, the essence of it and a special feast made. The book is full of colorful illustrations, fun quizzes, facts, sudoku, spot the difference, etc making the book interesting for readers. If you are a parent looking out to introduce India, the traditions, and festivals celebrate, you must get this book. The book is aimed for readers 8 + years, though the illustrations are catchy for younger audiences and information for all age groups.

    India is a land of diversity and traditions. If it were not for this country, the people wouldn’t have understood the essence of spending time with their loved ones, bonding over any occasion and celebrating the victory of good over evil. In every household, it is a mandatory ritual to educate the children about the history of our country and elucidate the reasons behind celebrating so many festivals. No doubt that the children understand better when they experience the situation but allowing th India is a land of diversity and traditions.

No doubt that the children understand better when they experience the situation but allowing them to learn something from the cold print is not bad either. Sonia Mehta (I love her for the kind of series she releases for young children) has come up with another book that doesn’t involve mathematical skills or analytical skills. This book is about the festivals of India. Right from Lohri that is celebrated in the month of January to Christmas celebrated in the month of December, this book briefly describes the history, reason and the rituals that govern the festivals.

    This is book written for kids, but this does not mean that adults would not like it. Written in an easy to follow language, this book talks about 54 festivals celebrated across India. The festivals have been arranged according to the English Calendar except the last 6).

She has also mentioned stories behind the festivals (having celebrated Lohri all my life, I actually did not know who Dulha Bhatti was till I read this book, nor did my 77 year old mother-in-law) and also why the dates of most of the festivals change. The illustrations are beautiful and the various activities kept me on my toes. Having read this book once, I plan to read it on the particular festival starting Diwali this year. This book is a definite must read and will make an excellent gift.

    A lovely collection of the vibrant and colorful festivals of India. This book is a composition of all the festivals that are celebrated in India along with the reason and stories about them. Which community and states celebrate which festival and how they are celebrated. SONIA, author of the book has done quite good research as there were many festivals even i was not aware of. A nice book to introduce the children with different and beautiful culture of our country through festivals.
