Dorling Kindersley Publishers never fail to create beautiful, engaging children's books, packed with fascinating information. In Celebrations, photographer Barnabas Kindersley teams up with writer Anabel Kindersley and UNICEF to create a fascinating journey exploring the cultural traditions of children all over the world. Harry Belefonte notes in his introduction, "Here is your opportunity to travel by book to nearly every corner of the globe [and] join children everywhere in celebrating important events in their lives." In addition to photographs of traditional costumes and customs, each child from the wide range of countries represented gives a first-person account of how holidays are celebrated. Children will enjoy learning about how kids the world over like to have fun just as much as they do, and in the process will broaden their cultural horizons. (Ages 8 to 12)
Find out how children celebrate New Year in Hong Kong, what children do during the Day of the Dead in Mexico, or when a Hindu child can throw paint at his or her school teacher. This book provides information on festivals from around the world through the eyes of children themselves.

Good quality book
arrived well before time.
It would be excellent for sharing with children since the pages are glossy with beautifully photographed children in traditional clothing of that country. The photos show food, costumes and the children give an account of how they celebrate their holidays. There are also samples of writing showing that not all written language is the same, that it can be different shapes.
The photos are taken by Barnabas Kindersley who enjoys taking photos and on his tours of the countries, he likes to get involved in the festivals. The writer is Anabel Kindersley who is a teacher. Both Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley have created a fantastic book. I have used many of the ideas from this book especially during the Chinese New Year. The book gave me information how it is celebrated and its customs.
I think all Dorling Kindersley Publishing's are excellent both for children and myself. The pages are beautiful and the pictures contain real people, real children both able and disabled. The photos show that children are different and how wonderful it is to share their thoughts and ideas with other's. Since starting an early childhood course, I have been collecting DK books because I think they are worthwhile keeping.
