Let’s Celebrate!: Special Days Around the World
Across the world all cultures celebrate. This book showcases thirteen such celebrations from diverse countries and cultures, some religious and some concerning the changing seasons or important days. Each celebration is presented across a two-page spread showing children celebrating with their families. The images depict contemporary family settings showing both genders. Wavy couplets (two lines on each page) focus on the activities prevalent for that celebration. The backmatter provides a little more detail on each holiday.
The holidays selected are truly from all parts of the world. If used in a classroom setting, facilitators are advised to review the celebrations’ background beforehand. In addition to the holidays, the images could be used to discuss attire and other aspects of the cultures depicted. An excellent book for globally-minded children and educators.
