Charles Pascalar's book "Holidays for Kids" is packed full of great ideas for parents and children to celebrate holidays together, well-known holidays and lesser known ones as well! This book is divided up into chapters by each month with the holidays specific to that month coming in each chapter. For example, July has five holidays: Independence Day, Macaroni Day, Slurpee Day, Lollipop Day, and Parents' Day. While the majority of Americans already have ways and traditions for celebrating Independence Day, the author has included some historical facts about each state and also information about different types of fireworks. Then Slurpee day is of course July 11th (7-11 Convenience Store) and the book gives a brief history of this store and a simple tradition of going for a Slurpee on this day each year. The last chapter contains other special days such as birthdays, picnic days and kids in the kitchen days that can be celebrated any day and many days throughout the year. Each holiday is discussed and ideas are shared for families to adapt and use in order to create their own traditions and have fun together.
This is by far one of the best parenting books I have ever read! Not only is it unique and fun to read, but it is filled with excellent ideas to use as a way to spend time and create memories with my children! I love the range of ideas and activities in this book and cannot wait to try so many of them out. While some will take more time and money than other ideas, it is all about creating the moments and memories as a family and giving of time and love as the author stresses. This is a must-read for all families!
