SHUB DIWALI BY CHITRA SOUNDAR

One of the few books that celebrates the birth of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth mapping her power from monsoon season to winter. With short, sharp sentences and clear-cut illustrations, the book's perfect for young children aged 3–5.

 

RAMAYANA: DIVINE LOOPHOLE BY SANJAY PATEL

With the magic of Disney and Pixar creations under his belt, Sanjay Patel's Ramayana (one of the epics of Hindu mythology) series includes a picture book on Diwali. In this book, Sanjay recreates Lord Rama’s return from exile after successfully winning that battle with Demon King Ravana. Stunning illustrations and smart story-telling that capture almost 24,000 verses into a succinct picture book.
