From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-Each chapter in this excellent addition to holiday and multicultural collections offers a simple explanation of customs and cultures followed by hands-on activities to help children Celebrate! Organized by theme, the book includes chapters on "Welcoming the New Year," "Celebrating Before and After Fasts," "Giving Thanks," and "Renewing the Spirit." In addition to some well-known celebrations such as Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, and El D'a de los Reyes, Jones includes less familiar festivals from Scotland, Ecuador, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, India, Nigeria, Barbados, and Japan. The recipes and art projects are clearly explained and illustrated, and include helpful lists such as "Here's What You Need" and "Here's What You Do." The volume concludes with a detailed index.
