School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-These simple introductions are just the right size and length to share with young children. Through large, well-spaced bold texts of one to four short sentences per page and color photographs at every turn, youngsters learn about the activities, gifts, foods, costumes, and dancing that represent the Chinese New Year, and the prayers, duration, traditions, and fasting of Ramadan. Back matter in each title consists of a visual "Words You Know" with small color photos repeated from the body of the book. These volumes fill a gap for information on these topics for very young children. Teachers of early elementary students will also find Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith's Celebrating Chinese New Year (Holiday, 1998) useful.-Augusta R.
