- Chinese New Year
This treasured resource represents a wide variety of cultures and various faiths—Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Christian.
Children of all ages will enjoy the folktales of Anancy, the trickster spider (Ghana); the story of how Ganesh got his elephant head (India), and why the Moon and the Sun make their home in the sky.
Readers will also learn how to make Chinese lanterns, spring flower festival decorations, a Filipino star for Christmas, simple percussion instruments, and kits that really fly!
Parents, teachers, and homeschoolers will find here a treasure trove of ideas for celebrating multicultural festivals that will delight children, inspire reverence, and broaden a child's world view.
