Set of 12 titles
  • Interest Level: Grade 2 - Grade 5
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Cultures around the world have their own superstitions surrounding good and bad luck, which often cause people to adjust their everyday actions. Some may think black cats bring good fortune, while others try to avoid crossing a black cat's path. People may cross their fingers when lying to avoid bad luck, while others hang up horseshoes to capture good luck. Each book in this series introduces readers to a specific superstition, how the superstition developed, and how it affects people today. Additional features include a table of contents, a fast facts section, critical-thinking questions, a phonetic glossary, an index, an introduction to the author, and sources for further research.
