Horn Book Review

After a brief introduction to the religion, each book elaborates on the historical background, symbolic artifacts, activities, and recipes associated with a festival. [cf2]Jewish[cf1] highlights the three pilgrim festivals, and [cf2]Buddhist[cf1] differentiates between the different schools of thought. The format is attractive: text boxes, color maps, drawings, and color photos. Festival calendar, reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Year of Festivals titles: [cf2]Buddhist Festivals throughout the Year[cf1] and [cf2]Jewish Festivals throughout the Year[cf1].] (c) Copyright 2010.
