Jingle Bells by Iza TrapaniJingle Bells takes the reader all over the world showing how all different countries and cultures celebrate Christmas.

This is a great story to read with children to expose them to the variety of ways that the holiday is celebrated. The end of the picture book has an illustration of all the children shown in the book together in one room celebrating the holiday. This sends a great message about acceptance and tolerance and promotes interest in learning about other cultures. I highly recommend reading this book with children around the holidays!
