Gr 3-5--Attractive titles that cover the important holidays and customs of their respective countries. The authors begin with a map and general description of the country followed by the significant festivals arranged by season. For each, five holidays are chosen for a two-page, in-depth treatment. The books conclude with one craft and one recipe. Readers will be fascinated with the descriptions of the festivals, some of which have similarities to those in the U.S. while others are vastly different, e.g., Ireland's Puck's Fair or Sweden's Lucia Day. Full-color photographs on every page depict children, many in traditional costumes, enjoying the holidays. Both crafts and recipes require easily obtained materials and ingredients. Handsome additions to most collections.
