Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-These titles are decidedly uneven in their presentations. While all have the simple text and abundant color photos, two suffer notable omissions. In Chanukah, the generally thorough text is marred by a description of the menorah lighting that fails to make clear that one additional candle is lit on each successive night. The most disappointing of the three is Christmas, which focuses almost entirely on festivities (decorating, eating, presents), while basically ignoring the meaning of the holiday and why it is celebrated. Only Kwanzaa avoids these sorts of oversights, providing a balanced introduction to the holiday and giving children a sense of its purpose and traditions.-Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
