Hello, I am the librarian for a K-8 school. Our world is full of hatred and fear that is born from ignorance about other people. In the interest of creating understanding and celebrating diversity, I would like to offer my students a resource about one of their favorite things: holidays and celebrations! I would like to offer them access to the full 11-volume "World Book's Celebrations and Rituals Around the World". We have titles 1-5, now we just need 6-11! The titles of the volumes are as follows: 1) Birth and Growing Up Celebrations 2) Harvest Celebrations 3) National Celebrations 4) New Year Celebrations 5) Spring Celebrations ------------------------------ 6) End-of-Life Rituals 7) Marriage Celebrations 8) Religious Celebrations 9) Winter Celebrations 10) Everyday Celebrations and Rituals 11) Index and Glossary Please help us fund this important work. Thank you so much.
