Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Created in 1966 in the U.S., Kwanzaa celebrates African American heritage and culture and is now observed around the world. As part of the Celebrating Holidays! series, this book shows young readers the traditions affiliated with Kwanzaa, such as lighting the Kinara and discussing the principles associated with each of the Kinara's seven candles. It also explains how much of this holiday is based on African harvest festivals. The book's many photos are full of bright colors, smiling faces, and dancing conveying the joyful spirit of the celebration. This level-2 reader uses large, clear fonts; offers a pronunciation guide; and limits text to one to two sentences per page. It also includes simple craft instructions for making a Kwanzaa flag. A cheerful overview of Kwanzaa's significance and festivities.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"
