Review:

Celebrate! provides the tools for addressing the "holiday question' in new, creative, and effective ways. Holidays matter deeply to people, and this book will help you involve children, families, and teachers in incorporating holiday activities within an anti-bias approach. If you have the courage, commitment, and presistence, this book will help you make it happen! -- Louise Derman-Sparks, Author of Anti-Bias Curriculum

In a beautifully presented, upbeat, easy-to-read format, Julie Bisson discusses the meaning of holidays and the complexities and different perspectives around this topic...[Celebrate!] is a very important addition to the field of anti-bias curriculum. -- Interaction Magazine, Summer, 1998

Julie Bisson tackles one of the most controversial and explosive aspects of multicultural education. She brings clarity and insight to the role of holidays and celebrations in early childhood programs. She answers the complaint "What am I supposed to do instead?" Her suggestions and real-life examples help us envision a new way of celebrating with children and families. Celebrate! is a much needed, long awaited addition to my bookshelf. It should be on every teachers wish list and in every programs resource library. -- Stacey York, author of Roots and Wings and Developing Roots and Wings.
