Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2�4—Short chapters deliver general information while text boxes define related terms and extend key ideas. Each book opens with a map and "How to Say It!" section that explains the country's holiday greeting. The large, color stock photos seem repetitive. Every title includes a "Hands-On" craft that contributes to readers' understanding of the celebration. Students looking for more information can get it on the publisher's website, which is accessible through a link provided in the back matter. Though an additional purchase, this set would be useful for comparing and contrasting different customs and supporting Christmas-around-the-world units.
