Holi Colors

24p. Orca. Feb. 2018. Board $9.95. ISBN 9781459818491.
PreS-K—This board book has the primary purpose of teaching young children the names of colors. Each page contains a photograph of children enjoying the Hindu festival by tossing and reveling in the colored powders thrown to welcome the coming of spring. The book not only teaches about the colors, but is a great way to introduce the occasion to young children who do not celebrate Holi. It is also a wonderful cultural connection for children who are Hindu and who will recognize themselves in the pages.
VERDICT A unique color book that goes beyond teaching about color to celebrate and teach about a Hindu celebration.
