Accompanied by attractive watercolors and surrounded by thematic borders, the informative text introduces readers to Christmas customs of Ethiopia, Sweden, Great Britain, and nine other countries. A page of additional facts, illustrated directions for related craft projects, and a pronunciation guide contribute to the book's usefulness. Bib., ind. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
