Review quote

`The super book will engage and appeal to any child from 7 to 11. Each double page spread begins with a short, but informative and clear explanation of the festival or season. Bold, brightly coloured and very attractive pictures... Straightforward instructions are given for each of the activities. The religious significance or symbolism of each task is explained concisely and clearly. The strength of the book lies in its simplicity.' * Together with Children * `An excellent, practical supplement to information books on festivals. Filled with good ideas.' * Times Educational Supplement *show more
