The Festival of Colors is fascinating with the joyful street gatherings and explosion of colors. In these pages, the festival isn't only lightly explained, but the time and joy in creating the colored powder is presented in a way young readers will understand, and probably want to try themselves.

This book is directed toward those who already know a little about the Festival of Colors, or to those who are learning about it. A boy and girl join their parents in preparing for the big day. They gather several types of flowers, each one for its distinct and bright color. These are dried and ground down into a powder, and then, it's off to the festival.

The illustrations are nicely done. They subtly allow young listeners to gaze at a household and family, who prepares for the festival...and all the while, lets them visit daily life in India. The love and close relationship of the family radiates from the page as well as the excitement for the festival. In other words, these teach a bit while letting the fun and happiness come through.

The text is kept short enough to guarantee boredom doesn't appear and the word choice is fitting for the age group. There are some terms, which might need a bit of explaining, but that also allows listeners to learn more along the way (which is the point). Unfortunately, there aren't any more detailed explanations at the end of the book, which might help adults better understand the material themselves so as to give more insight. Still, that's not really a problem. I was surprised at the amount of time spent to show each flower and introduce it as the various colors were collected. So, there's a little botany, too.

Anyone who wants to learn more about the festival will enjoy this read, and it's great for classroom settings as well. I definitely learned something along the way, too. And as already said, I can imagine kids will be inspired to try creating the powder themselves.
I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed learning more about the festival ( )

I really love this book. It is about the festival of colors that happens in the spring and is mostly celebrated in India. The story is about a brother and sister who prepare the colors for the festival. The pick flowers and dry them out and then crush them into a powder. Then, at the festival they throw them at each other as part of the celebration. The illustrations in this book were amazing. ( )

This book was very enjoyable to read! The characters in the story are Chintoo and Mintoo and they are very excited to celebrate the Indian festival of colors, Holi. Chintoo and Mintoo are fun and delightful characters which is shown by what they do in the story. They embrace their culture and help make the festival real. This book pushes readers to learn about other cultures, and it shows this festival of colors in a fun way! The illustrations were magical; every page had different and vibrant colors on them. The two characters gathered every color from plants and made powder to throw during the festival. The page where all of the people are enjoying and throwing the colorful powder is my favorite, it catches my eye and engages me to read more. The message of this book is told when explaining what Holi symbolizes; it is a festival of fresh starts, friendship, and forgiveness. By making this book fun and colorful, it teaches children about the culture of India and the importance of friendship and forgiveness. ( )
