Celebrate! Connections among cultures

KS2: ages 7-11BookWebsite

This book shows how different cultures around the world celebrate.

It draws out comparisons between cultures, and shows how many cultures celebrate similar things, such as being thankful, marking changes, or important people and events. The book highlights seven different groups, including Tibetans in the Himalaya, the Inuit, and the Yanomani in the Amazon, comparing how their festivals often include costumes, food, dance and music. The text shows how these celebrations are similar in many ways to American customs, where the writer is from.

The book is well laid out and includes colourful photographs, although the language is not always geared towards a young audience.There is a teacher’s guide available online.

Lee and Low is a US publisher, but if you’re in the UK you can order the book online via Amazon, Abe Books, etc.
