Previously published by Hodder Wayland as CEREMONIES AND CELEBRATIONS: WEDDINGS, this edition has been simplified and updated to suit KS1 and KS2 readers age 6-9 years. Children can discover information such as why Jewish couples break a glass during their wedding ceremony, why certain foods are eaten at a Hindu wedding and how bridesmaids support the bride at a Christian wedding.

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.
