Publishers Weekly
Two paperbacks by Jonny Zucker, illus. by Jan Barger, expand the Festival Time! series: Lighting a Lamp: A Diwali Story and Fasting and Dates: A Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr Story. The first details the traditions of the Hindu New Year, including the exchange and offering of sweets and lighting of diyas (small lamps). The second relates the ritual fasting during the month of Ramadan, followed by the joyful celebration and feast of Eid-ul-Fitr. An endnote with more detailed descriptions of each faith's tenets and traditions rounds out each title. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
