Christmas Around The World Coloring BookBy
By Joan O’Brien
Is it time to hide the brooms yet?
Discover wonderful ways that people celebrate Christmas in countries that range from Great Britain, France, Australia, Greece, China, Iraq, Sweden and Norway where it is customary to hide a broom after a beautiful family feast on Christmas Eve. Wonderful short explanations about meaningful traditions accompany beautiful black and white pictures that are truly inviting to color.
This is a great book that shares background on customs such as hanging stocking, caroling, mistletoe, yule logs and introduces so many other days and ways that people celebrate the season that heralds the birth of Christ. Great fun as a homeschooling social studies project or just for coloring, Christmas or holiday fun.
Highly recommended. Now, to find my crayons and coloring pencils!
Learn how Christmas is celebrated around the world by coloring 30 pictures, among them vignettes of young carolers in Great Britain, Mexican children playing under a piñata, a Swedish girl wearing a traditional crown of candles, Greek children parading with drums and triangles, and an Australian family picnicking on a beach.
