Skipping the typical green shamrocks, orange paper pumpkins, and red doily hearts, Kids Celebrate! lists 100 days to remember with 200 related activities for children and grown-ups. There is a Hansel and Gretel walk for Jakob Grimm’s birthday, a Mexican fiesta for Cinco de Mayo, and a first aid kit to make in honor of Clara Barton’s Birthday. The significance of each special day is explained in this educational tribute to the holidays, history, and accomplishments of many cultures and many people.
