I liked this opportunity to teach my children about other cultures around the world. The book is concise and in simple English, suitable to be read to very young children or for early readers to tackle themselves. There's a recipe at the end for Christmas cookies, to add a practical element.
A small book with a hard cover, which gives short explanations about Christmas around the world. The book doesn't give a lot of detail about the traditions in different countries, just a very brief sentence/ paragraph. MAT pupils in year 2 could do their own research into the traditions after getting the brief introduction from the book. Book arrived well packaged and quickly!
Bought this last year and read a chapter each night to my son, it really got us in the festive Christmas mood. Gave it to a friend to have a look at for her grandchildren and she kept it, also the snowman stories from the same series by Usborne. I had to but another copy for myself and it will definately be kept as a reminder for my son of Christmases when he was young.
