From School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—McAllister's collection of stories are arranged to represent holidays and seasons throughout the calendar year. This volume is notable for its beautiful illustrations, many of which are a full page in size. Students will enjoy locating the tales on a calendar or arriving at their own treasured holiday. Whether the book is experienced in its entirety or specific selections are shared in isolation, many curriculum standards in geography, social studies, or literature can be met using entries from this compendium. The text can also serve well for read-alouds for younger audiences. A list of each of the celebratory dates is included. VERDICT Consider for libraries where fairy tales and folktales are in high demand.—Elizabeth Swartz, Warrior Run School District, PA

Plus, the fact that they are stories from so many different cultures is also a huge plus.
