Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-- Brief descriptions of 13 holidays, presented in free verse. Greenberg describes each day as it might be perceived by young children, personalizing the activities to make them relevant to youngsters. This will be most useful as an introduction, despite a tendency toward the simplistic. Full-color miniature scenes in a somewhat primitive style enhance the text by capturing a salient aspect of the featured day, often providing an additional focus for discussion. David Adler's A Picture Book of Jewish Holidays (Holiday, 1981) contains basic information about the same holidays, with more explanation about their meaning, and is therefore recommended for slightly older children. --Susan Kaminow, Arlington County Public Library, VA
