New Year Books for Kids - Happy New Year

Happy New Year by Emery Bernhard, Durga Bernhard (Illustrator)

Happy New Year will teach the kids that different cultures celebrate the New Year in many different ways and at different times of the year. Included is some history - how the Greeks, Romans and Druids thought about the coming of the New Year, Emery Bernhard explains how in ancient times people were not always sure that spring would come again and so there were rituals involved to help appease the gods and spirit. The book not only explains how the people of different countries celebrate the New Year, but why they do what they do. The book will answer the following questions:

  • Why is noisemaking important in greeting the new year?
  • Why do the Burmese pour buckets of water on each other?
  • Why do Jewish families eat apples dipped in honey?
  • What do Columbians do to predict what will happen in the coming new year?
