Ever heard of Coptic Christmas. How about National Wattle Day. If that's a no and a no, look to the titles in the Cultural Traditions in My World series for an introduction. Unlike your typical about-a-country books, these focus solely on holidays, special events, and customs—encompassing everything from religious observances to seasonal rituals—and present them in chronological order as they occur throughout the year. In Cultural Traditions in Australia, we learn how the Aboriginal people brought their traditions from Asia thousands of years ago. The aforementioned National Wattle Day, a celebration of the natural world held on September 1, is named in honour of a green-and-gold flower, Australia's "floral emblem." These large-format books feature one custom per spread and colourful, action-oriented photographs. Back matter is fairly nonexistent; nonetheless, the titles offer a tidy overview of a topic covered in many elementary school units. Grades 2-5, --Ann Kelley --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
