From School Library Journal
Grade 4 Up-A valuable resource and companion to the Encyclopedia of Christmas (Omnigraphics, 1999). Featuring alphabetically arranged entries covering everything from "Alleluia" to "Wine," this volume provides more in-depth information than most reference books of this ilk. Articles cover well-known aspects of the religious festivals as well as lesser-known pagan customs and ancient festivals in which some modern traditions have their roots; each one lists suggestions for further reading. Celebrations in 20 countries are covered, much to the relief of every public librarian who has had to answer holiday-around-the-world questions. A comprehensive index, extensive bibliography, and a list of Web sites round out this excellent resource.Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, ColumbiaCopyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
From
This reference consists of 154 entries, arranged alphabetically, that address Easter-related folk customs, religious observances, history, legends, folklore, and symbols. The intent, according to the introduction, is to provide not exhaustive coverage but a solid introduction. The author manages to do just that through a series of engaging and sometimes in-depth essays that run between one paragraph and several pages. Topics range from celebrations that precede that 40-day period of Lent, such as Mardi Gras and Pancake Day, to the Easter bunny and the stations of the cross.
There is an emphasis on Christian beliefs as professed by the Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox religions. Other observations are discussed, including Passover and Shavuot (Jewish), Hilaria and Floralia (ancient Rome), No Ruz (Persian New Year), Beltane (Celtic), and May Day. Twenty nations have specific entries, and additional local information is provided through articles on customs such as Easter eggs and Carnival that trace the historical development and culture-specific interpretations of these traditions around the world. Entries end with further reading selections and Web sites. A bibliography of all referenced sources and a detailed index complete the volume. The black-and-white illustrations are not an enhancement.
The only reference work devoted exclusively to Easter currently in print, this is an entertaining and solid introduction that will be useful for both report writing and ready reference. Recommended for public, high-school, and academic collections. RBBCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
