Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5-8. Kwanzaa, the African American celebration of black cultural heritage, is simply introduced for young readers or listeners in a book that emphasizes the rituals rather than the seven principles. Text and art highlight the significance of the candles, fruit, and special mat, as well as the importance of family. The full-color illustrations are especially lively, depicting children and adults wearing African-inspired dress. The last pages suggest a few activity ideas for parents and teachers to use with children. ~--Denia Hester"
