Kick up your heels and raise the roof as you celebrate the feasts and festivals of countries around the world!What better way to learn about the people of a foreign country than to celebrate one of their favorite holidays? Kids Around the World Celebrate demonstrates, through lots of activities and recipes, that although each culture has its own unique feasts and festivals, people throughout the world share many of the same reasons to celebrate. From January to December, readers will travel around the world to participate in the rich traditions of people in China, Scotland, Mexico, and many other lands. * Celebrations include Carnaval in Brazil, Eid-ul-Fitr in Saudi Arabia, Inji in Nigeria, as well as the more familiar Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. * Includes many easy-to-make recipes, from Chinese chiao-tzu (dumplings) to Ecuadorian ensalada de fruta (fruit salad). * Gives step-by-step instructions for activities such as making a carnaval parade flag and an Igbo drum. Lynda Jones (New York, NY) is a freelance writer who has contributed to Creative Classroom, Science World, Essence, and other magazines.
