Book Description

31 Oct 2007 Holidays Around the World
December 25th is a day of peace and festivity, the culmination of a season of worldwide goodwill. Carol singers give voice to the joyful spirit, trees are decorated, and gifts exchanged between families and friends. A name-check of the gift-bearers awaited by children reflects the global nature of the celebration: Pere Noel in France, Santa Claus in America, La Befana in Italy, and the Three Kings of Hispanic cultures. With first-person narrative, informative back matter, and evocative photography, "Celebrate Christmas" is a rich historical and cultural resource for children. National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.Visit www.natgeoed.org/commoncore for more information.

This book was just okay, not at all as i expected. Cover alone is very deceiving to me. I thought it would have lots of poems a more of a table top book.

I used this beautiful book in my classroom to supplement my Christmas Around the World library. Beautiful pictures for children to look at. The text may be hard for younger readers though.

Although the book somewhat explains Christmas in different areas of the world-this book could have been better. Doesn't hold the attention of a child very long.
