Holidays Around the World Books

This comprehensive list of Holidays Around the World Books for Kids will help you plan your Holidays Around the World unit. The books all focus on different holidays, countries and cultures.
Holidays Around the World is an extremely popular unit in elementary schools and homeschool classrooms throughout the month of December. Although some teachers refer to it as Christmas Around the World, I encourage you not to do so as that is not an accurate term when referring to the various cultural celebrations on a global level.

If you are considering teaching this unit in your classroom I am here to help make your job so much easier. 

I recently shared my 5 Simple Steps for Teaching Holidays Around the World and showcased all of the activities that I've used over the years. I also created a 70 page downloadable collection of FREE Holiday Around the World No Prep Activity Pages that can be used with any book. This post will make it even easier for you to engage your students in learning about different countries and their holiday traditions through children's books.

Many teachers worry that a Holidays Around the World unit may be costly because they don't have resources to teach it. This is not the case at all. In fact aside from the printable pages from my resource bundle, the only other materials I used were books from the library and free online videos

Use the time-saving book list below to decide which titles are a good match for your students. Clicking on any of the covers will take you to full descriptions and summaries as well as reader reviews via an Amazon affiliate link. While you may want to build up you personal collection of books by purchasing them you could also use the list to request copies from your local library or even search online for video of the books being read aloud at no cost.
