Danish Material assessment and lecturer opinion from the libraries
“Pelle and Ronja learn about 30 different holidays and traditions, all of which take place during a calendar year. There are suggestions for topics of conversation, questions for the reader and ideas for games and activities that can be done together. Several holidays are linked to the Christian church , eg Easter and Pentecost, but others are more seasonal as autumn festivals.From newer traditions there is Valentine’s Day and Pride Week.
A very nice and informative picture book. Beautiful and very evocative illustrations that fit the text of the book, written in a child-friendly and clear language. A nice realistic picture is given of the role of traditions in modern families, for example the children get pasta and meat sauce on ‘Mortensaften’, and have to wait until the weekend for the traditional food.
Ideal for kindergartens and school”
