Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As more schools and governments recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day in October, children may wonder what this day celebrates. In this book from the Happy Holidays! series (12 titles), Sabelko answers these questions in very broad strokes. Regrettably, the spare text--one or two short sentences per double-page spread--doesn't lend itself to much depth or detail, making the day's events feel overly simplified. Some examples include, "People look at art," "People plant seeds. They help the land," and "People march. They fight for Native rights." Fortunately, the well-chosen photos may help spark more interest and curiosity. These photographs colorfully illustrate what Native American people, art, seed-planting, protests, and customs look like today, rather than in a stereotypical past. A basic but still-needed introduction to Indigenous Peoples' Day for beginning readers."
