Review by DannieN
This book is a collection of poems written by authors around the world. It is a great collection, including poems about many different holidays and traditions such as, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Pancake Day, Ice Festivals, Carnivals, Purium, St. Patricks Day, Holi, Baisakhi or Valsakhi, The Cherry Blossom Festival, Easter, La Tomatina, Thanksgiving, and many more! There are so many different cultures and religions included in this book, that no student will feel left out by reading about holidays that they don't celebrate because it is not specific to any one culture, religion, country, etc. This is a great text if you are not allowed to teach about specific holidays, but can read these generalized poems that represent each holiday without specifically calling it that holiday. The illustrations are done so uniquely in that they look like they are a combination of textured papers, paintings, and drawings/cartoons.
