Holidays and Celebrations

For many families, holidays and traditions are an important part of life. Books about holidays and celebrations help children to recognise that there are such a diverse array of holidays and celebrations from many different parts of the world. Tell your children stories about customs and traditions of other cultures to help them develop a well-rounded and realistic view of our world.
