Somewhere in the world there is a festival going on. Let's Celebrate is an anthology of more than 80 poems for key stage 2 readers. We go to Carnival in Rio, take part in the Seder meal at Passover, light a lamp for Diwali and attend butterfly dances in Korea and lion dances in Singapore. There are ribbons and lanterns, witches and dragons, jokes and solemnities. Footnotes add information on dates and rites. Let's Celebrate is edited by John Foster and costs pound;5.99 from OUP.
