This book is a great representation of the power of sharing your family's cultural with new friends. Diwali in My New Home shares the meaning of the bright and festive holiday with readers, who may or may not be familiar with its origin. Either way, it's a learning opportunity! The book's powerful message of adapting to change, while remaining true to your roots is a wonderful one. Readers are sure to be engaged by the eye-catching illustrations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
