Celebrations Of Light : A Year of Holidays Around the World

Nancy Luenn (A) and Mark Bender (ILT)

List Price: $17.99 (Hardcover - Highlights 12 Cultural Celebrations / Festivals / Spiritual and Religous - 1998)

Description:Long ago, people found a way to light the darkness. They built fires to keep warm and cook their food. They lit torches to drive away danger. To help them see at night, they learned to make candles and lanterns. Light was so important in their lives that they came to use it in worship and in celebrations.

From a Brazilian New Years celebration to the African-American holiday of Kwanzaa, Celebrations of Light circles the year and the globe. The text and paintings highlight twelve festivals, showing the diverse ways in which people around the world use light as a major part of their celebrations. In each of these holidays, light plays a significant role, marking and brightening special days. (32 pgs) Ages 7-10

Ashay says, "Always standing in the light. I think its great that there are so many wonderful cultural celebrations. It reminds us that the world is not one dimensional. Get this book for the classroom and library."
