Connections Among Cultures
Awards: Chicago Libraries
A photo-essay explores the similarities among celebration rituals in several indigenous cultures around the world and compares them with celebrations in the United States. A wonderful way to celebrate the holidays, and enjoy the feeling we are all one human family celebrating life on earth.
"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." Kirkus Reviews
"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 welcome addition to multicultural literature." -- School Library Journal
