Every year in October or November people come together to celebrate Diwali.

Diwali is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. The stories woven into the festival of Diwali celebrate the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, and people celebrate this festival of lights by lighting clay lamps and candles, sharing sweets, exchanging gifts, offering prayers to gods and goddesses and watching fireworks. Introduce your little one to the awe of this brilliant festival through dazzling photographs and Singh's lyrical prose.

"Singh brings the vibrancy of the festival of lights to the page by incorporating bright colours in every spread. Diwali Lights is the perfect companion to Singh's board book, Holi Colors."
– CM Magazine
"Rhyming text is paired with a vivid photograph…With its focus on very young children, the book shows how Diwali is celebrated."
