This Is Our World: Celebrate With Us!

Valerie Wilding Asa Gilland

About the book

Meet twenty children from around the world as they tell us about the feasts and festivals they enjoy and the religions and customs they follow.

This Is Our World – Celebrate With Us!, written by Valerie Wilding and illustrated by Åsa Gilland, is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed This Is Our World. It’s a vibrant and colourful celebration of our planet’s cultural diversity – an unforgettable journey that brings the people, customs and religions of twenty places to life for young readers.

The tour is truly global, as we journey from Eid al-Fitr in the UK to the Hanami cherry blossom festival in Japan, from Christmas Eve in Poland to the Festival of the Sahara in Tunisia, via Diwali in India, Australia’s indigenous Barunga festival, Rosh Hashanah in New York, the Day of the Dead in Mexico, and much more.

This is both a beautiful gift book and a highly-accessible home reference, sure to foster an interest in the wider world, in travel, in diversity, and in cultures and religions.
