Rich cultural connection, a loving family theme, and eye-catching illustrations make a great combination in this beautiful story. Holi Hai! presents the Hindu festival of color clearly and simply for young readers. The book celebrates Indian culture in a way that will make those familiar with the holiday feel seen, and those that are new to the holiday intrigued. The book doesn't shy away from important lessons and showing character flaws, making it educational and relatable. A great read for the whole family!

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.
