Well-written summaries about the origins and significance of the featured holidays are the strongest aspect of this set. Books open with an announcement that the day “is here!” Subsequent chapters define the festivity: its religious and cultural roots, geographic origins, places where it is currently celebrated, and preparations, including associated rituals, practices, and foods. Extras include maps, “How Do You Say?” tables with a handful of words in various languages, and a simple craft or recipe. Layouts are very attractive with a few sentences of text and large photos. Though there are a number of series on similar topics already available, the emphasis here on the importance of the holidays to those who celebrate them will help emerging readers understand their cultural significance.

VERDICT A strong selection for its empathetic tone.
