No Rouz: Our Persian New Year

by E.S. Zameen

 

Midwest Book Review --- April’s Reviewer’s Choice

No Rouz: Our Persian New Year is an educational picturebook that teaches young people about No Rouz, or Persian New Year, a major holiday of the Iranian people. Traditionally beginning on the first day of spring, No Rouz is filled with proud traditions about throwing out the old year, being together with one's family, and celebrating the new year. Full-color photography of a modern Iranian family's festivities enhance this highly enjoyable tour recommended for public library children's collections as a window to other nations and their cultures.
