Wake up, it’s Holi!
Sameer and his family are preparing to celebrate Holi and the beginning of spring! Scrumptious sweet and savory treats fill platters, and a rainbow of powdered colors is set out. Everyone is ready for the bright and messy festivities ahead.
But young Sameer gets nervous seeing his sisters start throwing colors and water balloons at each other. Noticing Sameer’s fears and wanting him to celebrate in the bright and messy colors of spring, his family comes up with a silly solution...
Excitement, history, and traditions abound in this vibrant celebration of Holi. Complete with a glossary of Hindu words and delicious recipes.

SANYUKTA MATHUR is a social scientist and studies how to improve the health and well-being of young people around the world. She is the author of Happy Diwali! She lives in Maryland with her family. 

COURTNEY PIPPIN-MATHUR is the author-illustrator of Maya Was Grumpy and Dragons Rule, Princesses Drool!, which Booklist praised as “a delight from start to finish, and its empowering conclusion is a welcome bonus.” She lives in Alexandria, Virginia. She is hugely grateful to be part of a diverse and welcoming family who work hard to bring their traditions to the United States and to pass them to new generations.
