Having lived overseas for many years, I have come to appreciate the many festivals and cultures around the world. One that has always fascinated me, is Diwali. The books in today’s blog are colourful, beautiful and full of vivid information about Diwali, festivals of light as well as other cultural celebrations and brilliant women from India!

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
