Synopsis

The First Book of Festivals by Anita Ganeri

This latest title from Anita Ganeri brings together between one and two festivals from each of the six main world faiths (Christianity, Islam, Jewism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism), explaining their origins and how they are celebrated today. Highly illustrated with colour photographs, the book includes photocopiable activities and further activity suggestions at the back, which have been compiled by a qualified nursery teacher. It is an ideal introduction to different faiths, their beliefs and origins for young children.
