Part of the "Festival Time!" series, this book looks at Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year celebrations (September 7th/8th 2002). Each title in the series illustrates a different Jewish festival. The books focus on the way the festival is celebrated today, with illustrations of a family taking part. The text is very simple, and has a warmth and lyricism which chimes in with the spirit of the celebrations. A double page spread at the end gives more detailed historical and cultural information about each festival, for parents and teachers.
