Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this large format book, kids will have an opportunity to see and read about a variety of religious and secular holidays all over the world. To give some structure, the holidays are organized by season. All of the children are incredibly appealing. For each spread there is a large picture of the child along with insets of photographs or illustrations and text that give more information and details about the particular celebration. To illustrate, in the Fall section, we meet a family and learn about the origins of Thanksgiving, types of foods, and how this family celebrates. It is a delightful book that will enrich children's understanding of the world. A portion of the proceeds will go to UNICEF.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6A rich, multicultural look at holidays around the world. The celebrations are arranged by season and include: Christmas in Germany, Halloween in Canada, Hanukkah in the U.S., Diwali in India, Hina Matsuri in Japan, and Egemenlik Bayrami in Turkey. Each holiday is shown on a two-page spread with a large photograph of a featured child or children and many smaller captioned photographs of the festivities and the culture. A preface by Harry Belafonte in his role as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF opens the book. It is a superb addition to country/cultural teaching units, and also makes a wonderful lead-in to writing, art, and creative-drama activities used to teach holidays. An enjoyable visual experience.Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA
