About the Author:

Kendall Haven, the only West Point graduate and working scientist in the United States to become a full-time storyteller, has performed for more than 3 million people. He has published more than 35 stories on audiotape and has more than 200 stories in book form. He lives and writes in northern California.

From Booklist:

Storyteller Haven has written 31 stories of celebrations from many cultures around the world, with two or three stories for each month of the year. There's a wide range of cultures: Passover, Easter, and April Fool's Day in April; the Day of the Dead, Homowo, and Thanksgiving in November, and so on. Fictionalized scenarios dramatize what it's like for a contemporary kid to celebrate the various festivals--religious, historic, seasonal, cultural, legendary, etc.--and the story is often set up so that there's a naive outsider asking about the festival and a knowledgeable participant explaining what's happening and why. The fictionalization is somewhat contrived, but Haven generally stays true to the spirit of the festival. Before each story, there's a brief historical introduction; after the story, there are questions and follow-up activities. Teachers, librarians, and students will welcome the calendar arrangement and the seasonal focus. Hazel Rochman
