Cultural Traditions in Brazil

“I found the book to be very educational as well as attractive for middle school readers...Our 6th graders do an in-depth research project every year on countries. The Cultural Traditions series would be a good choice for them to use as it provides detailed facts with colorful authentic photographs. The table of contents, glossary, and index were all easy to utilize.” —Kathleen M. Rizzo, Librarian, Baldwin Borough Public Library, 10/12 “The holidays and how they are observed in Brazil are the focus of this colorful title. The information is simply explained with great photographs of the material objects that go along with the celebrations of each holiday...It is well done and very approachable to young children. Highly Recommended! —Debra Gantz, Walled Lake Consolidated School District, 08/12 “...for any collection interested in building cultural country exploration sections...over thirty pages of detail suitable for grades 2-3...focuses on cultural traditions and takes readers through an entire year of holidays and traditions celebrated around the world, exploring history, culture and habits alike. Colorful photos and simple activities highlight each book in a fine survey packed with color and interest.” —Children’s Bookwatch, 07/12
