Amma Tell Me About Holi!
Tell your children about Holi, the Indian Festival of Colors, by reading this beautiful children's picture book to them, written in rhyme with captivating illustrations.
Siblings Klaka and Kiki gather with their friends and family to celebrate this spring festival which symbolises new beginnings, friendships, forgiveness, and a license to being naughty and playing pranks! At the end of the day as Amma tucks the brothers in bed, she answers their countless questions - Why do we color one another on Holi, where does Holi get its name from? Why do we light a fire the night before Holi?
