Let’s Celebrate! Festival poems from around the world

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Everyone loves a celebration and with this lively, multicultural, poetry anthology there is an excuse to celebrate almost all year round.

Some festivals will be very familiar to all young readers, others are more specific to particular ethnic groups and some may be a revelation to many of us. While not professing to covers all festivals, a wide range of cultural and religious events are included such as Eid, Diwali, Christmas, Pancake Day, the Tomato Festival, Thanksgiving and Kwanzaa.

A comprehensive glossary contextualises and explains the festivals and stunning, celebratory illustrations complement the text throughout.
