Summary
"Information about Kwanzaa gathered here into one handsome volume will prove helpful to children who want an overview of this unique and growing African-American seven-day festival?Some tales are humorous; some, such as the story of Rosa Parks by Eloise Greenfield, are serious. All are wise." - Parents' Choice. "Families and schools can draw on this wonderful, generous guide to shape their own Kwanzaa celebrations." - Kirkus Reviews. "A true karamu for Kwanzaa. Beautifully presented and illustrated by eight noted African American artists, this is an aesthetic and artistic treat." - School Library Journal
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-7. Although the Gosses present a very brief history of Kwanzaa, a song, recipes, a game, and simple patterns for African-style clothing, the real reason to buy this book is for the wonderful stories that have been selected to match the seven principles of the Kwanzaa celebration. Linda Goss' skill as a storyteller is evident in the five folktales, which read aloud beautifully and offer a mix of humor and insight. "Rabbit at the Water Hole" requires audience participation and would be great fun at a family party or in a classroom. Eloise Greenfield's story about Rosa Parks and Clay Goss' poem "Keep the Faith, Baby" complete the literary offerings. Brilliant, full-color illustrations by noted African American artists Ashley Bryan, Carole Byard, Floyd Cooper, the Dillons, Jan Spivey Gilchrist, Jonathan Green, and Jerry Pinkney accompany the stories, and an extensive bibliography is provided. --Chris Sherman"
