Diwali, the festival of lights

The Diya Trail is the 10th picture book of the series “Tikulu’s Adventures”!

After Tikulu versus Grandmother Kal, Joëlle Écormier comes back with a colourful story illustrated by Henry Koombes: she invites us to an explosion of lights as we witness a typical Diwali celebration. It is the perfect occasion to learn more on this Hindu festival: what is it? What is the tradition?

Our little ones are thus encouraged to discover this special celebration that is paramount to the Hindu religion.

Diwali or Deepawali is the great festival of lights – the one that celebrates the victory of good over evil. It is customary to light small lamps as the sun sets and to give each other little boxes full of sweet cakes to dispel bad thoughts. They symbolize friendship and sharing and are, most importantly, a real delight!

The series “Tikulu’s Adventures” is not the only one to get bigger! 2007 announced the arrival of two new educational booklets for the series “Naturally Curious”. The booklets Dolphins and Whales and Our Bird Friends allow children to understand a bit more the world that surrounds them.

The series “Tikulu’s adventures” and “Naturally Curious” can be found in bookstores and supermarkets.
