I have a two year old i'm teaching about holidays. I get one usually a month before the holiday and read it to her each night and retire it after the holiday. I get super excited for holidays but didn't know how to explain it to a toddler. There's also not a lot of books out there that do this. I loved the valentines day, thanksgiving, halloween books the most. I really didn't like the christmas book. It was all about how stressful xmas time is. While true i didn't want my daughter thinking thats how it was. She can be stressed about it when shes 30 like me :) The first one i bought was thanksgiving and it covered the basics like cooking and family coming in and being thankful. The st patricks day one was kind of weird with leprechauns hiding things in their yard and outsmarting the family. I guess it's better than pictures of grownups at bars drinking green beer. So this book was a little strange but i like the series and wish i could just buy a set to give as gifts.
