"Each book presents an important religious festival in an appealing format. Appropriate bold and colourful illustrations cover each double page spread. These help highlight the cultural and religious nature of the festivals. The texts are brief and simple, telling the stories in a way that naturally explains the rationale behind the respective festivals through the activities and statements made by the children."
