Moving chronologically through the calendar year, this book looks at the typical events, customs and celebrations celebrated by Hindu children. Festivals such as Divali and Holi, and personal customs such as Raksha Bandhan are explored through the use of religious articles, books, buildings, symbols and food. Look inside eight-year-old Dhara's diary to read what it's like to be at each event.
