Genre: Informational

Review: This book gives great insight into how other cultures around the world celebrate holidays or other celebrations we do in the US, such as birthdays, carnivals, Halloween and the different seasons. This story has some cultures and celebrations that I had never heard of before. I learned a lot from it!

This book is a great multicultural book about celebrating diverse holidays. Children can see how different ethics celebrate around the globe. Celebrations also has holidays that connect with science too. Some nationality celebrate holidays based on the season changes and weather changes. Teachers should create a KWL chart to see what students know and want to know about different holidays.

Lesson that would connect to this book would be to have a Around the World Fest. This is a festival that would celebrate different cultures and traditions. Students could join a pen pal service and talk to different students around the globe about their differences in culture and other topics. Students should then bring different items for the different holidays. Have the kids write a report on their favorite holiday and what they learned.

The authors of this book traveled the world attending celebrations all over the world. They put real children in their book along with quotes about what they like most about their celebration. This is an important book to have in your classroom all year round. You could teach about different festivals throughout the year when it is appropriate. If not, then the book should be in the classroom library year round for children to read as they please.… (more)

Summary:
This children's book "Children Just Like Me: Celebrations!" is about children all over the world who are from all different countries and their stories on how they celebrate their celebrations.

Review:
I find these types of books so interesting and fun to read. I used to love reading these children's books. The size of the books makes read them even more fun to read. I think all children need to learn about other cultures and how different people celebrate different holidays and celebrations in many different ways. I also think it is neat that the stories of the different celebrations are from real children in other parts of the world.… (more)

Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley, creators of the acclaimed Children Just Like Me, meet with children around the world as they celebrate 25 of their favorite holidays and traditions. With stunning photographs and illustrations, readers meet each child and learn the significance of the chosen celebration. Full color.

This book is loaded with information about holidays around the world. Many different cultures are included as well as many pictures related to each holiday. The book can feel a little cramped, but it does include a plethora of interesting information. Since it is so heavy in content, I would recommend this book to be used as reference material for older elementary students. It would also be a great book to keep in the classroom library for casual perusing.… (more)
