Through lively verse and colorful illustrations, this festive book celebrates the history and meaning of Kwanzaa. Families will enjoy the hands-on fun of lighting their own candles as they journey through this festive holiday and learn about its traditions and principles. As an added gift, this instructional book includes a no-bake Kwanzaa recipe.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A simple, direct narrative describes the lighting of the Kwanzaa candles, the principle each represents, and how families carry out that concept with a focus on words and sounds. The principle Ujamaa, or cooperative economics, for example, is depicted as Laughing shoppers and chanting merchants, we support our neighborhoods. Back matter includes an author's note, a pronunciation guide, and a recipe for No-Cook Kwanzaa Brownie Bites. With an effective use of shape, silhouette, and bold color, the flat, posterlike illustrations are ideal for group presentation. Pair this with Juwanda G. Ford's K Is for Kwanzaa: A Kwanzaa Alphabet Book (1997) and Karen Katz's My First Kwanzaa (2003) for preschool and primary-grade Kwanzaa celebrations.--Perkins, Linda Copyright 2009 Booklist"
