Updated information and unbiased, developmentally appropriate strategies and activities to celebrate, rather than exclude, diversity, traditions, and holidays. Many programs are establishing a "no holiday" policy, but this book shows you how to celebrate and adhere to school policy. Among other topics, it includes evaluating holiday activities for appropriateness, addressing commercialism and stereotypes, involving families, and developing inclusive policies.

Julie Bisson provides training on subjects ranging from culturally relevant and anti-bias curriculum to holiday curriculum.

Louise Derman-Sparks has worked for over fifty years on issues of diversity, social justice, and activism in early childhood.
