Especially perfect for toddlers, as it's a board book, and they'll love the colorful illustrations!
Though it's a great read for older kids as well, Indians & non Indians alike. In-fact this would be the perfect book to take & read to your kids class (especially if you are living outside India) to introduce them to the festival.
Also, this particular book doesn't get into religion, just the festivities & celebrations on and around Diwali.
For the religious reasoning for the festival, you can check out - Amma Tell Me About Diwali.
I plan to buy the others in the series to teach her about different cultures.
Well, because of the obvious and intentional exclusion of the story of Sri Ram's return to Ayodhya on the day of Diwali, which is a very popular reason why Diwali is celebrated in many parts. One's personal bias should not recreate the meaning of festivals in children's books.

Not so great: the book's spine was damaged when it came.
