Catch the wave of enthusiasm that accompanies holiday celebrations, and use it to promote reading and literature throughout the year. Focusing on books for elementary readers published within the past five years, Blass introduces you to 200 of the best new fiction and nonfiction titles about world holidays-from New Year's Day, Ramadan, and Mardi Gras to Juneteenth, Pioneer Day, and the Bon Festival. The guide offers full bibliographic information; a plot summary; a booktalk, bookwalk, or read-aloud for promoting the book to young readers; and ideas for discussion and extension learning activities. Chapters are organized chronologically from January to December, with additional chapters on Holidays in General and Other Special Occasions, covering such events as birthdays and losing a tooth. Alternative title suggestions for each holiday are given at the end of the section. A source of inspiration for reading assignments, book lists, and library displays, this guide is also a great resource for multicultural units. Grades K-6.

ROSANNE J. BLASS is former Professor of Education, University of South Florida, and author, and workshop presenter based in Clearwater, Florida.
