A Celebration of Christmas around the world!
Christmas is all about traditions and Debbie Powell's Walk This World at Christmas Time has undertaken the massive job of showing readers how different people all over the world celebrate it, from typical culinary treats, to special songs to sing, clothes to wear and presents to give. Powell's unnamed narrator wanders the planet from West to East, stopping off long enough to exchange gifts with skaters on the Rockefeller Ice Rink in New York, to light a campfire in the hills of South Africa, meet Italy's Befana, break the oplatek wafer in Poland or decorate a banana tree in Goa. The illustrations (served by numerous flaps to lift) are busy, warm and fascinating. A beaufiful production celebrating diversity in words and images, and one where you might find new traditions to adopt! -- Juliette Saumande Children's Books Ireland
