About this title

Synopsis:

Every culture has its own special traditions and reasons for celebrating. People in the Australian outback walk on a dream journey, connecting with their past. In Bali, dancers perform a graceful Legong dance, telling an ancient story. And in the United States, people watch fireworks, marking the birth of the country. At first glance these practices seem quite different from each other, but they are actually much more alike than most people realise. In Jan Reynolds' striking photographic journey, children are introduced to celebrations in cultures near and far.

Review:

Colorful, inviting photographs introduce readers to connections among cultures from around the world. A welcome addition to multicultural literature. -- Children's Reviewer "School Library Journal"

Far from a generic view of 'primitive' peoples, this photo-essay draws on Reynolds' experiences while she lived with a variety of families around the world. Beautiful color photos show how indigenous peoples everywhere 'mark changes, express thanks, and honor important people and events,' with feasts, costumes, music, and more." -- Children's Reviewer "Booklist"
