Light the Candle! Bang the Drum!

Happy New Year!

I used to read this book to Madeleine and Henry when they were little. It's about the different holidays around the world and how the people and children in that country celebrate. It's where we first learned about Diwali. There's New Years and Valentine's Day, Carnival, Children's Day, May Day, etc... The information is sparse (though there's more about each holiday on the back page) but that makes it a good read for younger children.
