Overview

Religious and secular events are celebrated throughout the year by most religions and cultures. This six-volume series describes for children some of the more important ones. An abundance of color photographs and a snappy text show how each festival is marked in locations throughout the world. Each book also offers ideas for making festive decorations and food, so that the reader can take part, too.

This holiday falls at the end Ramadan, the month-long fast observed by Muslims all over the world. The joyous Id celebration includes not only family feasts and gatherings, but also visits to the extended family, too. Of course, the observance begins with prayers, but the feasts, friendship, and sharing associated with Id are the focus of the holiday. The story of Id cards and information about the special nature of Islamic art, and why people are never depicted, are useful too. Special desserts and sweets are a big part of the celebration.
