Births by Polly Goodman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Previously published by Hodder Wayland as CEREMONIES AND CELEBRATIONS: BIRTHS, this edition has been simplified and updated to suit KS1 and KS2 readers of ages 6-9. Children can discover information such as how Christian baptism differs from a Muslim naming ceremony, which special words are whispered into a Sikh baby's ear and how a Hindu baby's horoscope is read. The book includes child's-eye accounts of some of these events as well as extracts from ancient religious texts to demonstrate their origins. It provides a fascinating insight into the beliefs and practices expressed through the special ceremonies of the six major world religions and is essential for any classroom or library.
