Product description


As a a mom who always looks for tools to teach culture to my kids and talk about traditional holidays, I was so excited when I came across a book about Lohri that not only shared the story behind the bonfire festival, but also shared the story using rhymes...In Lohri: A Bonfire Festival moms get a chance to see how Punjabi is used to teach kids to read the Gurmukhi script. A Romanized Punjabi transliteration of all pages is at the end of the book to aid in pronunciation. It is a great book to present to families celebrating a marriage or new child in the family, bringing alive the old traditions of Punjab for the next generation of Punjabi families around the world. --MasalaMommas

Lohri: the Bonfire Festival authored by Parveen Kaur Dhillon and colorfully illustrated by Anantdeep Kaur is a festive rhyming book which effectively captures the spirit of celebration as characters sing and dance across the pages begging for Lohri sweets and treats. Cross cultural festivities offering ideas for hands on fun. Charming illustrations entrance young and old alike. Colorful bonfire festivities spark the imagination. Depicts regional clothing and costumes. Promotes Punjabi language learning. --About.com
