A Calendar of Festivals - Cherry Gilchrist

"In our modern world, where we usually live in small groups, it´s especially important to share our festivals and celebrate together," says author Cherry Gilchrist. She chooses festivals originally established by Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Caribbean, Japanese, Celtic, and Russian traditions.

Each festival´s chapter begins with a one-page overview followed by the story of how the fete came into being. Illustrator Helen Cann varies her motifs to compliment the culture celebrated. An excellent book for the whole family.

Ages 9 to 12
