This story almost has it all. I would have loved to give it five stars. It is well written, engaging with a good plot for such a small children's book. It has beautiful illustrations that children can relate to. It is a wonderful holiday story and much needed to show some diversity in holidays. The part that gets it four stars instead of five is that the girl's origins and background isn't well explained in the beginning. It is hinted at but not enough for small children to understand. If it were stated outright and the holiday slightly explained in the beginning, it would help children who don't know the tradition and it would be affirming for those who do.

Beautiful introduction to the holiday of Divali. I used it in a storytime called "Holiday Lights" [...] and it was was very well received by the Kdg-3rd graders. I like how it addresses the universal themes of homesickness and moving to a new place and it is especially useful in our community which has a sizeable South Asian population.

A nice story with illustrations although it does not give the kind of detail that my children & I crave. I paraphrased it, using the pictures, for a group of 3 - 6 year olds at school and they liked it. An easy introduction to Diwali for them. Then I showed them a few things, including a clay oil lamp and we had Indian sweets. For pictures of a more traditional celebration and those details, use the 2 page spread in "Children Just Like Me: Celebrations!".

This carefully crafted tale of homesickness and hope combines the universal experience of long-awaited plans foiled by weather with the grief of a young girl pining for her far off home. This book leaves us with the powerful insight that its up to each of us to fill our darkness with light.
