Publisher Comments:

Festivals, carnivals, and feasts from around the world. Everyone loves a special occasion — be it New Year in Hong Kong, Diwali in India, or Carnival in Rio. For Man Po, Sonu, and Janaina, the locations may be different, but the preparations, the excitement, and the atmosphere of their favorite festivals are the same. This remarkable new book from photographer and writer team Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley captures the color and vibrancy of international children's festivals. For 12 months Barnabas and Anabel have traveled around the world, meeting children and talking to them about the celebrations and festivals they enjoy. The children's stories are recorded in this beautiful book, which is published in association with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Original photography and the children's own words bring to life many of the world's major religious and local celebrations from countries as far apart as Japan and Mexico, India, and Sweden. From the dazzling costumes of the Rio Carnival to the role of the elephants in Sri Lanka's Esal Perahera, children everywhere will love learning about the festivals and the wonderful ways that these events are celebrated around the world.

Synopsis:

Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley, creators of the acclaimed "Children Just Like Me", meet with children around the world as they celebrate 25 of their favorite holidays and traditions. With stunning photographs and illustrations, readers meet each child and learn the significance of the chosen celebration. Full color.
