Celebrate Easter with National Geographic Kids

I love NatGeoKids! They have everything a kid (even a big one like me) loves! Around this time of year, many people all over the world are preparing to celebrate Easter.

Celebrate Easter with National Geographic Kids

Nat Geo Kids shows readers, in gorgeous full-color photos how other people celebrate Easter. While reading the book, young readers will discover that in New Orleans people celebrate Mardi Gras, and in England there are pancake races, in Cuba there are carnivals with stilt walkers!

The book contains photos of people attending church in Peru and Russia. In Germany, there is an Easter Eve bonfire, and all across America there are Easter egg hunts. Celebrate Easter is a good addition to your library not only because of the photos, there are recipes (yummy food), songs, and maps in the back.

I remember when I was a kid I had to get dressed up in a new dress and go to church. The book even explains that old tradition. What traditions do you have for Easter?
