About Children Just Like

Product Description This remarkable new book from photographer and writer team Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley captures the color and vibrancy of international children’s festivals. For 12 months, Barnabas and Anabel traveled around the world, meeting children and talking to them about the celebrations and festivals they enjoy. The children’s stories were recorded in this beautiful book, published in association with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Original photography and the children’s own words bring to life many of the world’s major religious and local celebrations from countries as far apart as Japan and Mexico, India, and Sweden. From the dazzling costumes of the Rio Carnival to the role of the elephants in Sri Lanka's Esala Perahera, children everywhere will love learning about the festivals and the wonderful ways in which these events are celebrated around the world. Amazon.com Review Dorling Kindersley Publishers never fail to create beautiful, engaging children's books, packed with fascinating information. In Celebrations, photographer Barnabas Kindersley teams up with writer Anabel Kindersley and UNICEF to create a fascinating journey exploring the cultural traditions of children all over the world. Harry Belefonte notes in his introduction, "Here is your opportunity to travel by book to nearly every corner of the globe ... [and] join children everywhere in celebrating important events in their lives." In addition to photographs of traditional costumes and customs, each child from the wide range of countries represented gives a first-person account of how holidays are celebrated. Children will enjoy learning about how kids like just like them have fun, and in the process will broaden their cultural horizons. (Ages 8 to 12) From School Library Journal Grade 2-6?A rich, multicultural look at holidays around the world. The celebrations are arranged by season and include: Christmas in Germany, Halloween in Canada, Hanukkah in the U.S., Diwali in India, Hina Matsuri in Japan, and Egemenlik Bayrami in Turkey. Each holiday is shown on a two-page spread with a large photograph of a featured child or children and many smaller captioned photographs of the festivities and the culture. A preface by Harry Belafonte in his role as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF opens the book. It is a superb addition to country/cultural teaching units, and also makes a wonderful lead-in to writing, art, and creative-drama activities used to teach holidays. An enjoyable visual experience.?Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Scientific American Anabel is a young teacher, Barnabas a photographer of children. They spent more than a year flying to 18 countries around the world, lugging camera gear that weighed the same as the two of them together. They certainly enjoyed it, along with the local kids who became their friends on festive days. Here we will meet only a few kids. Twelve-year-old Janaina dances in pink-feathered boots and green sequins as Queen of the Drummers, at the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro for the oldest Samba School in the city; she rehearses every Monday for that one grand day. People eat pink popcorn and drink coconut milk as the huge flamboyant parade dances past to the music's beat. In Sri Lanka the Buddhist processions go on for 10 nights in the old city of Kandy. There are 100 elephants in that parade, with dancers, acrobats, flame throwers and drummers. We see 15-year-old Nishantha, a tambourine dancer, beside a costumed elephant that wears a gold-dotted suit of red velvet. Celebrants feast on the tropical fruits that are in full season. M'sangombe is a dancer at 10; he dresses for the part with a zebra-mane headdress, a leopard-skin costume, a cowhide shield and a long hardwood stick. A dozen villages send teams of young and old each year at harvest time to perform the fierce warrior dance before the Paramount Chief of the N
