    K-Gr 3—Young children are introduced to popular holidays celebrated in the United States and around the world in this beautiful series. Each book examines the history of a holiday as well as its traditions, symbols, and place on the calendar. Children learn about the origins of Halloween, the story behind the clay lanterns lit during Diwali, and reason gifts are given on Christmas. Each page features stunning photos of celebrations that will capture readers' attention and make them want to learn more. The text is simple and friendly, working in tandem with the images. At the end of each book is a pictorial guide of the holiday's symbols such as Day of the Dead's sugar skulls and skeletons. This is followed by a glossary, resources, and an index. VERDICT This series perfectly captures the magic of each holiday and demonstrates how they are each unique and special. Recommended for school and public libraries.
