Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With text and photographs of celebrations of little known cultures and our own, the author hopes to show our common humanity. A world map shows where the peoples live: Tibetans and Sherpas in the Himalaya, the Tuareg in the Sahara desert, the Aborigines in Australia, the Sami in the European Arctic Circle, the Yanomami in the Amazon basin, the Inuit in the north of North America, and the Balinese in South Asia. The bright colorful photographs show people celebrating by eating, drinking, and decorating themselves with special clothing, paint, and beads. In the United States children celebrate Halloween in costumes. Other components of celebrations are music, dance, and gathering around fires. Americans celebrate birthdays with lighted candles on a cake. The text explains the pictures and gives further interesting details. The author concludes that, "We are one human family celebrating life on earth." The author lived with the cultures presented. There is a pronunciation guide, and additional sources are listed. Children may not see the commonality, but they will be interested in the pictures. 2006, Lee & Low Books, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Colorful, inviting photographs introduce readers to connections among cultures from around the world. The book looks at celebrations among the Tibetans and Sherpas of the Himalaya, Tuareg of the Sahara, Aborigines of Australia, Sami of the Arctic Circle, Yanomami of the Amazon, Inuit of North America, and Balinese of South Asia, and includes corresponding entries from the U.S. Reynolds clearly shows that while every culture has its own traditions and reasons for celebrating, these events have much in common-people gather together, eat and drink, decorate themselves, make music, dance, and use fire. The excellent-quality photographs and the brief, engaging text come together to promote the theme: "We are one human family celebrating life on Earth!" A pronunciation guide, author's note, and map are appended. A welcome addition to multicultural literature.-Alexa Sandmann, Kent State University, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The well-traveled author-photographer, who has provided many strongly individual portraits of peoples, now emphasizes similarities in the celebrations that humans have created for the seasons, births, deaths, weddings and histories. The sharing of food and drink; the gathering of many people together; the use of masks, distinctive clothing and makeup; and the special elements of music, dance and fire are all found in the festivals and observances of far-flung and still largely traditional cultures, including the Tibetans and Sherpas, the Tuareg, the Sami, the Inuit, the Balinese, the Yanomami and the Aborigines. Some U.S. celebrations are also included. The fascinating photographs are the strong point here, but the short paragraphs that explain the rituals and customs will tantalize readers to find out more.
