don't bother Dec 17 2012
By Susiedaul - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We do a year long theme of "celebrating" in my kindergarten classroom, with all the celebrations of light taking center stage in December. I bought this book hoping it would show my students how using lights in the darkest time of year is a commonality around the world. Basically, it misses the mark! On the outside it is exactly what I was looking for, but the text is way to dry and uninformative, and the pictures, while lovely, don't enhance the text or provide clues to kids. (How about some maps, symbols, or kids celebrating!) Its not informative enough to be a good non fiction, and its not readable enough for a read aloud... so it leaves me skimming, paraphrasing, and then explaining what the pictures are supposed to be about. Would definitely not have bought it if I could have flipped through it first. Don't waste your money.
Beginning of a unit - great March 7 2014

I used this to introduce a short unit of study to my third graders, in which they researched various holidays of light and presented them to their classmates. It's got lovely illustrations and they enjoyed the read-aloud.
