Booklist Review

K-Gr. 2. From the authors of Happy New Year, Everywhere! (2000) comes this Christmas craft book with a bit of a twist. It shows how Christmas is celebrated all over the globe and adapts some of these traditions for an American audience. In France, Yule logs are a traditional dessert, and an easy recipe using Twinkies is provided. Icelandic children decorate their homes with "Christmas pockets." Youngsters will learn how to make these woven hearts and how to say Merry Christmas in Icelandic. Twenty countries, from Mexico to Serbia, are included for a general overview of the holiday. Eye-catching watercolor-and-ink pictures do a fine job of illustrating the material, and a map locates each country. A bibliography, including the Christmas Greetings Homepage, is appended.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-Christmas is celebrated by more than a billion people each year, in more than 100 countries around the world. The Erlbachs introduce readers to traditions from 20 of them, from Australia to Serbia. Each spread includes a holiday greeting in one of that country's languages, a brief description of some of the celebration's highlights, and a craft or a recipe. Some of the traditions and foods will be familiar (an advent calendar from Germany, for example), while others may be a little surprising (spiders are a symbol of prosperity and good luck in Poland). The artwork is bright and festive, and the instructions are easy enough for even the most craft-challenged adults to follow.-M. A. (c) Copyright 2010.
