Non-Fiction Picture Books - Happy New Year Everywhere

Happy New Year Everywhere by Arlene Erlbach 2001

Haven't had a chance to refresh myself or find any new books for the New Year celebration, but found this book that offers some interesting information on how New Year's is celebrate around the world. Something worth exploring with your young one. "The author shares traditional customs and traditions of celebrating the New Year from 20 different countries. Different cultures may celebrate the New Year using different calendars and holiday names. Each section highlights a different county, the date(s) of their New Year observance, the name of their New Year holiday as well as a traditional greeting, a related game, recipe, song or craft. There is a world map that pinpoints each country that is being discussed. Colorful line art accompanies the projects." Suggested for preschool age and up. Here's wishing you all a happy and peaceful New Year.

Yes, Happy New Year everywhere and to everyone. This sounds like a great book for little children (and their parents.) I can think of two litle boys, who would have have enjoyed this book complete with a map, crafts, and recipes.
