A noteworthy review of Celebrating Holidays from School Library Journal on November 1, 2021
This series captures the sights and sounds of holidays around the world. Young readers are introduced to new holidays and learn the histories of familiar celebrations. Each title reproduces the excitement with descriptive language and engaging illustrations. Modern-day practices are traced back to their origins and the cultural significance of foods and colors is explained, but the books also convey the sheer joy of time spent with friends and family. Included in the books are recipes, traditional songs, poetry, crafts, and ideas for joining the spirit of the celebration. Back matter includes a glossary with pronunciation, index, and additional resources. VERDICT This beautiful series should be a go-to resource for each holiday season.
