Miss Mackle's third graders share December holiday traditions--Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, and Korean New Year--with each other and with Harry's great grandfather, who has just moved to a nursing home.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What's wrong with Harry? He's not being horrible, and that is quite noticeable as Room 3B begins to celebrate five winter holidays: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings' Day, Korean New Year and Christmas. Dexter Sanchez' father brings in a shoe and a crown cake to explain Three Kings' Day, celebrated among Hispanic peoples. Ida Burrell's mom comes with a hat-making project and explains the new African-American holiday of Kwanzaa. Everyone has fun but Harry. What's wrong? Poor Harry is discombobulated since his great-grandpa moved into a nursing home; but celebrating Hanukkah there on a field trip seems to be just what the class and Harry need to bring back his good spirits and his horrible ways. This just-right book never gets pedantic while explaining the different cultures in Room 3B and always stays in character for early chapter book readers. The pen and ink pictures are irreverent and cute, exactly meeting the spirit of the irrepressible third graders. Fun for all, and lots of information, too. 2003, Viking, Ages 7 to 10.
— Judy Chernak
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-It's December, and the children in Room 3B are excited about a new classmate, a new class pet, and the chance to learn about the five winter holidays that various classmates celebrate-Three Kings' Day, Korean New Year, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and Christmas. Harry seems listless, but snaps back to his usual self when the teacher finds out that he's unhappy because his great-grandpa has gone to a nursing home, and she takes the whole class to visit him. The presentation of the various holidays is uneven in coverage and somewhat dull, although things pick up at the end when the kids receive gifts from their Secret Santas. Fun for beginning chapter-book readers, despite the educational elements.-E. M. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
