Poems About Festivals A lively and accessible collection of poems which celebrate 13 of the many festivals marked around the world, from Diwali and Christmas to Children's Day in Japan. Each of the 15 poems is accompanied by a simple illustration which also incorporates an iconic image related to the particular festival, for example a Chinese dragon for Chinese New Year, a sickle moon for Eid-Ul Fitr and a girl tossing a pancake for Shrove Tuesday. Further information is included at the end for teachers or parents with suggestions for looking at rhyme schemes, ways to get readers to say what they like about a poem, ideas for performance and discussion topics such as looking at sharing their own experience of a festival.
