Item Description...
Nowruz--the Persian New Year--is one of the world's great festivals, a full month of activities celebrating the earth, the arrival of spring, and the rebirth of nature. Most of all, it is a festival for families. Children and adults alike can share in preparing special meals, decorating the house, and performing the many ceremonies that welcome the New Year. This book is a guide to customs thousands of years old yet as vital as ever--enjoyable for families no matter where they live or what their beliefs.

Happy Nowruz offers twenty-five fun, easy, and innovative Nowruz recipes, with lots of photos to show you what to do. This is an ideal guide for parents, teachers, and kids--age six and older--to know more about the origins of Nowruz and to get everyone involved in preparing for the arrival of spring by:
baking Haji Firuz cookies
germinating seeds in eggshells
coloring eggs
making a Nowruz garland
jumping over fires
setting the Haft-sinn (seven-s) holiday table
planting narcissus and hyacinth bulbs
selecting and buying goldfish
banging spoons for trick-or-treating
cooking the Nowruz dinner
enjoying the Outdoor Thirteen picnic

Each book is shrinkwrapped with a stainless steel cookie cutter in the shape of the herald of the New Year--Haji Firuz--for making and decorating Haji Firuz Gingerbread Cookies.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  Apr 29, 2008
I love that this cookbook has traditional recipes and information about the Persian New Year. The photos and descriptions are terrific. My only complaint is that some of the recipes have ingredients that are not easy to come by, and no substitutions are noted (nor is there info on whether some of the minor, hard to find ingredients could be omitted, if necessary).
Not what I expected...  Apr 21, 2008
The haji firouz cookie cutter is a blast however the gingerbread receipe does not offer adequate ingrediants to make a good batch! I think the receipes should be revised. Good first effort!
Wonderful Book   Apr 6, 2008
This is yet another wonderful persian cookbook from Ms. Batmanglij. I have three of her other books, and each one is full of fantastic recipes, beautiful photographs, and lovely cultural information. This book is no different. This is be very helpful in learning to celebrate Nowruz with my daughter (my husband is Iranian) for years to come. We already made the haji firuz cookies!
Beautiful book !!  Apr 3, 2008
I have been celebrating NooRooz with my Persian family for 27 years. This children's book is beautifully written with the meanings and symbols of the holiday explained. The recipes are authentic and the illustrations of the children cooking make this a wonderful family book. My children are grown now, but I bought this book for my daughter, who is expecting her first child and set up her first Haft Sein in her own home this year. I know she will enjoy using it with her family in years to come.
Wonderful cook book  Mar 25, 2008
As a teacher, I have been talking about Spring with my kindergarten class, and I came across Najmieh Batmanglij's book "Happy Nowruz". What a delight it is! It's colorful, filled with different easy-to-cook recipes, and the ingredients are easy to get hold of. The pupils in my class especially enjoyed the illustrations of children cooking. We prepared many of the recipes, including cream puffs, pomegranate popsicles, and raisin cookies. The children had a wonderful time cooking, as well as eating each and every one of the foods we made. And they loved sprouting and taking care of their lentil seeds in the egg shells , to make Nowruz Sabzeh. This is a terrific book for youngsters and their teachers!
