Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
While there is no lack of holidays around the world, this early reader focuses on a few that kids enjoy. The first is Chinese New Year, which takes place fairly early in the calendar year. Some of the symbols are the color red and a parade featuring dragon dancers. February bring Valentine's Day and kids learn a bit about its origins. Then it is onward to April and the fun of April Fool's Day. The accompanying trick that is played will bring a chuckle. Toward the end of the year, readers are introduced to Diawali, a Hindu holiday, Christmas, and Kwanzaa, a fairly new holiday which many African-Americans celebrate. The concluding page mentions half a dozen more. There is an index. A Dorling Kindersley Reader, level 2 book for kids beginning to read alone. 2000, DK Publishing, $12.95 and $3.95. Ages 6 to 8.
