The Book of New Family Traditions: How to Create Great Rituals for Holidays and Everyday by Meg Cox.

Senior Editor Donna DeSoto reviewed an earlier edition of this book; here is an excerpt from her review:

"Cox says there are ten good things rituals do for children. They impart a sense of identity, provide comfort and security, help to navigate change, teach values, pass on ethnic or religious heritage, teach practical skills, solve problems, keep alive a sense of departed family members, help heal from loss or trauma, and generate wonderful memories. [the following is a quote from the book] 'The special power of ritual is that it can slow time and heighten our senses, and by doing so, we can intensify and deepen our family ties. Learning simple ways to create unforgettable traditions is what this book is all about.'"  Read the entire review: Creating Traditions by Donna DeSoto.
