Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose Attebury Wendt
What kinds of holidays or festivals do children around the world celebrate? Do people in the United States recognize the same ones? This Level B book in the "Yellow Umbrella Books" series answer these questions. Divided into four sections, the book describes celebrations from each of the four seasons: fall, winter, spring, and summer. In the fall, people in the Caribbean celebrate Carnival while a celebration of the moon takes place in Vietnam. American families enjoy a special dinner for Thanksgiving and people in India give gifts and light candles for Diwali, a festival of lights. Other holidays mentioned include Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, the Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, May Day, the Cambodian New Year, Cinco de Mayo, the Japanese Children's Day, and the Fourth of July. A colorful photograph accompanies each holiday and shows children, adults, and families celebrating. The diversity presented would make this book an appropriate selection for world culture lessons or as a prelude to any holiday celebration in the classroom. End matter includes a combined glossary and index.
