For educators, librarians, and storytellers, this collection assembles stories related to holidays throughout the year, presented chronologically. Miller, a storyteller, compiles stories by librarians, storytellers, educators, and scholars based in the US, Canada, Thailand, and South America, who also describe how to get audiences involved and use props. They present related books and stories, activities, songs, and background on the holiday, including those such as Ramadan, Setsubon, International Peace Day, and Kwanzaa, alongside traditional holidays. There is no index.
