Around the World Tradition and Celebrations Books

Around the World Tradition and Celebrations

Did you know that March is Harmony Month? To mark the occasion, Educational Experience have put together a beautiful collection of books for children that are focused on celebrating our diversity called “Around the World Tradition and Celebrations”.

They kindly sent us a bundle of the books and we’ve been having a lot of fun reading them with our two children at bedtime and learning a little more about different cultures and traditions around the world!

The 8 books are called Around the World Tradition & Celebrations and they are a beautiful collection of high quality picture books.

I love that as well as the beautiful photos and pictures of different traditions and celebrations, they also aim to help educate children in literacy skills too.

Here is a little about each book:

Special Celebrations Around the World by Jay Dale

This book showcases four special celebrations from around the world – Diwali, Chinese New Year, The Yam Festival and Shichi-Go-San. I love the mix of illustrations and bright photos and they intrigued my children. My 2 year old wanted to find out more about each photo.

Where Do You Live? By Janice Vale

In Where do you Live we meet 6 children from different countries in the world. We found out where they live, what they do there and some interesting facts about their country. There’s a really helpful glossary at the back too.

I love the many photos of the children, places and animals in each country.

Where is My School? By Alison Sage

This is a lovely little book about Kim’s school, who she sits with, her teacher, how she gets to school and where it is!

Unusual Traditions by John McIlwain

Here we find out about different traditions from around the world, with a chapter on what a ‘tradition’ actually is too. The traditions the book explores include dancing and games!

Homes by Jay Dale

In this lovely book we see the homes of different animals, including one of our favourites, the koala! We find out where they live and what they do before finishing up in a family home at the end.

Around the World by Anne Wilson

This is an absolutely beautifully illustrated book which takes us around the world through different seasons and on different transport! Each location is splendidly depicted in illustration with bright and bold colours to capture your child’s imagination.

Landmarks of the World by Helen Chapman

We’ve been able to describe to my 2 year old which of the world’s biggest landmarks she’s already been to – such as the Sydney Opera House – and the ones we might visit in the future!

I love the bright photographs of each landmark and a little description so we can learn about where the landmark is and what it might represent.

This book looks at what might happen at birthday parties in different countries and the differences in the clothes, food and how they might celebrate.

This is great timing as it’s my daughter’s birthday very soon and birthdays are all she talks about!

We read to my 10 month old son too and he has been mesmerised by the bright and beautiful illustrations and photographs in these books.

I think that this is a beautiful set of books that will capture the minds of children and parents alike!

Do you teach your children about the different traditions and celebrations around the world?

    I had no idea it was harmony month, I like that idea although we really should all be looking for harmony in life every month, shouldn’t we? The books look fabulous.

      They’re such lovely books – I think we’re learning just as much as the kids are :) x
