Summary
"In the United States, Labor Day honors American workers. What started as a small labor union festival in 1882 has become a national holiday. Every first Monday in September, many schools and businesses close, and parades pop up across the country! This informative title explains the history and many transformations of Labor Day."
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Let's celebrate! These new books in the Celebrating Holidays series introduce beginning readers to a hodgepodge of religious and cultural holidays. Each book explains the holiday, who celebrates it, its origins and traditions, and when it takes place. Author Grack keeps the explanations simple, though the language is so basic that it occasionally becomes choppy. A helpful sidebar of words for holidays that use non-English vocabulary including meaning and pronunciation adds a sense of authenticity. The photos sometimes feel a bit generic, but they appropriately illustrate the celebration of each holiday. Each book also features either instructions to create a holiday decoration or a simple holiday recipe. The books reflect the variety of the holidays presented. Labor Day has a historical focus, including both the original and the end-of-summer significance of the day. Overall, these books are a good beginning for young readers to start learning about diverse holidays.--Miriam Aronin Copyright 2018 Booklist"
