Celebrate Christmas

Celebrate Christmas

by Joanne Mattern

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7-Mattern provides a little more meat than is found in the average overview. She devotes several pages to the origins of Christmas, first as a pagan holiday, then as a celebration of Jesus's birth, and its evolution into the holiday as it is observed today. Symbols of Christmas, important people, and traditions from around the world are explored, and there is a fair amount of discussion about the commercialization of the holiday. A list of volunteer suggestions to help others, "Spread the Spirit," is appended. Full-color photos and reproductions appear throughout. There is plenty here for reports.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
