Rama and Sita: the story of Diwali

Modidied image

‘Rama and Sita: the story of Diwali’ is a re-telling of the tale – recounted in the ancient Sanskrit poem ‘The Ramayana’ – of Prince Rama of Ayodhya and his wife Sita, exiled to the forest by a jealous stepmother and hounded by the demons who lived there.

This is a story of loyalty, courage and bravery, and the ability of love to overcome all.

For children aged 4 and upwards, the book is an exciting read-at-home story and an excellent educational resource to support the study of the Festival of Diwali.

‘I can’t think of a more child-friendly account and the illustrations are clear, witty, imaginative and fun. I thoroughly recommend this book!’ Jamila Gavin (Coram Boy, Grandpa Chatterji, Kamla and Kate)

‘An excellent bright, beautiful book that shows and tells the story of Rama and Sita very well.’ Pippa Goodhart (You Choose, Just Imagine, Winnie the Witch).

‘A wonderful reworking of the Hindu Diwali story, with the input of real school pupils. Informative, easy to read and delightful to look at – we need more books like this so that all of our children can see their cultures reflected!” Bali Rai (Soccer Squad, Rani & Sukh, Fire City)

‘I used the book with my class whilst studying Diwali. The children were hooked and loved every page.’ Jo Thomas, primary teacher.
