This book is a level 3 Hindi reader. Level 3 books helps in developing fluency in Hindi for children who are relatively comfortable with Hindi script and vocabulary and need practice to maintain and improve their skills. On each facing pair of pages in the book, the left page lists the Hindi paragraphs that narrate the story on the top. The bottom of the left page has the transliteration of the paragraph in English. If the transliteration is read in conversational English, the pronunciation would be similar to the one in Hindi. The right page translates the paragraph in English. The book contains three stories in which the lovable character of Sonu, a toddler, goes through several misadventures as he tries to celebrate Diwali, Holi and Rakhi. The stories capture the realistic experience NRI kids in America are likely to go through on these festivals.
