Amma, Tell Me About... Diwali!
by Bhakti Mathur

The ‘Amma Tell Me’ Series is a charming and informative series of children’s books that introduces the major Hindu festivals and figures to young readers in a fun and non-preachy way. Written in rhyme with vivid, captivating illustrations, the books are perfect for families wanting to share stories from Hindu mythology with their children or for educators looking for resources on Indian festivals and culture for their students.

Brilliant firecrackers lighting up the night,
Diyas twinkling like stars - what a sight!
This is Diwali, in all its glory
As told to little Klaka, a magical story.

First the celebration of Prince Rama and his homecoming,
His victory over Ravana, the evil demon King.
Next a story of Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth
Who rewards her true devotees with fortune and health.

The ‘Amma Tell Me’ Series brings alive the magical tales from India in an enthralling manner using simple language and vivid imagery, for children aged 3-9 years. Author Bhakti Mathur decided to create the series when she struggled to buy books on Hindu festivals that were suitable to read to her young children. The result is a series of colourful, lighthearted books which introduce children to Indian mythology in a simple, entertaining way. Bhakti uses rhyming prose, combined with stunning, opulent illustrations by artist Maulshree Somani to explain the significant festivals, figures and stories of Hindu mythology.
