This compelling collection takes us back through story & legend to the origins of many festivals celebrated throughout the world. It even traces some of the stories that are connected to them. Each festival comprises its own chapter with a historical introduction. Information source notes at the end of the book provide even more intriguing facts. Young readers will discover how a brave young girl saves her people from the wicked Haman in the Jewish tale, "The Story of Ester". In the magical tale from the West Indies, youngsters will follow the Warau clan as they embark on a journey through a hole in the clouds. This cross-cultural collection includes stories from the Russian New Year, the Indian Festival of Holi, the Moon Festival of China, and, of course, Christmas.
