Binny wakes up happy but nervous. It is her day to share about Diwali, the Festival of Lights!  She is excited to talk to her class about her favorite holiday. But she struggles to find the words. Taking a deep breath, she tells her classmates about the fireworks that burst like stars in the night sky, leaving streaks of gold and red and green. She shares with them delicious pedas and jalebis. And she shows them clay lamps, called diyas, which look so pretty all the children ooh and aah. Includes detailed information about the Hindu festival of lights in the back.
