New York: It’s story time at school, and a cu­ri­ous girl named Harini is shar­ing her family’s tra­di­tions for Di­wali, the fes­ti­val of lights, only to learn that she’s not the only one in her class who cel­e­brates the hol­i­day. That’s the premise of “Let’s Cel­e­brate Di­wali,” a new chil­dren’s book writ­ten by teacher-au­thor An­jali Joshi and il­lus­trated by Tim Palin that is help­ing kids learn about the dif­fer­ent Di­wali tra­di­tions cel­e­brated across the globe. “We re­ally wanted to fo­cus on the fact that there is more than one re­li­gion that cel­e­brates the hol­i­day,” Sailaja N. Joshi, founder and CEO of pub­lish­ing com­pany Bharat Ba­bies, which is pub­lish­ing the book, told NBC News. NBC News
