A perfect, kid-friendly introduction to family heritage.
Today is a big day for the five friends. Their class is hosting a Heritage Festival to celebrate the customs and traditions of people from all over the world. Martin, Sally, Pedro, Nick and Yulee each have their own heritage, and they have so much to share! They learn about various traditions involving music, food, language, stories, crafts, clothing and games. They also learn that exploring their different heritages makes everyone feel like they belong!
There’s a world of fun to be had, as readers discover the many ways people are alike and what makes each of us unique!
“I thought this book was awesome! It really opens the door for teaching children to be appreciative of being different and unique. The children came from all around the world, it touched on indigenous cultures, it portrayed an array of families, and it was just overall a great eye opener. My daughter thought this book was really cool, she especially enjoyed learning about Japan, a country she’s always wanted to visit. We greatly enjoy books that allow us a glimpse into the world and this accomplished that. I’d easily recommend this book to friends and families.”
