I was disappointed with this book. I was looking for something that would cover both the religious and non-religious aspects of Easter, and explain the early origins of Easter as a festival of Spring, showing how it can be celebrated by both religious and non-religious people . Having researched the Author and her description of the book I thought I had found what I was looking for. However, unfortunately the book represents Easter only as a Christian festival. I will have to continue searching!

HASH(0x94ef3c00) out of 5 stars This is a very well written, concise account of this very important Christian holiday 5 July 2009
By Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Easter is a time when Christians celebrate "the Resurrection of Jesus Christ." People around the world have their own way of celebrating this sacred event. Preparations for this holiday start six weeks before with the observation of Lent. During this time many people have to think of something to give up, something that they like or enjoyed doing. Perhaps you will give up candy or playing with video games. It is a solemn time for reflection on the last days of Jesus, not for enjoying ourselves.

Just before Lent, many people celebrate before their observation. For example in New Orleans people celebrate with the festival of Mardi Gras on Shrove Tuesday and in Olney, England people have pancake races. In this wonderful book you will learn about Holy Week including Palm Sunday, the "custom of washing other people's feet" on Thursday, Good Friday, the `round the world customs on Easter Eve and the "miracle of Jesus' resurrection" on Easter Sunday. It is a time of joyous celebration. Does your family do anything special on Easter?

This is a very well written, concise account of this very important Christian holiday. The photography and text highlight not only the solemnity of the celebration, but also the joy. The photography, although heavily centered in the United States, does have examples from around the world. In the back of the book there is a glossary, a map indicating where the photographs were taken, an excellent section where more factual information can be found, a recipe for "Franny's Tatales" and additional recommended book and web site resources.

By Kristi Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Easter is a time for celebration. People all over the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, spring and family.

Young readers will enjoy this colorful history of the Easter holiday. Fantastic photography brings readers right into the limelight of celebrations from all around the globe. Readers will see cultures dance in Kona Hawaii, take on an Easter egg hunt at the White House and meet a rabbit in Natchez Mississippi and so much more.

The back of the book has hymns, a glossary, maps and even a recipe for Franny’s Tatales, an Italian Easter cookie.
