Feedback from the herd

Again, Barefoot Books weds colorful, warm, and engaging illustrations with rhythmic, rhyming words to produce an outstanding contribution to diverse children’s literature. The reader travels around the world to celebrate holidays from Japan, China, New Zealand, Peru, Brazil, Sweden, Iran, Nigeria, Russia, Egypt, Mexico, India, and the United States. The text is sparse, but the illustrations and the endnotes provide details to satisfy but not overwhelm curious minds. Pronunciations of the holidays are provided and a calendar showing how these holidays are dispersed throughout the year. Many of the holidays may be new to children – and adults. Among them are Matariki in New Zealand, Nowruz in Iran, and Inti Raymi in Peru. However, because the U.S. is so culturally diverse, some holidays may be familiar to us – Carnaval (like our Mardi Gras), Passover, Dia de Muertos, and Diwali. There are many layers to this timely book, making it a great resource to share with a broad range of age groups. It is a useful springboard for researching various cultures around the world and helping children realize that these cultures are all represented within our own U.S. citizenry. (Reposted from
