Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Kwanzaa is an African American celebration of shared African culture. Drawing from a number of African harvest celebrations, Kwanzaa is a celebration created by Dr. Maulana Karenga in the 1960s in an attempt to bring African Americans together and give people an opportunity to celebrate their shared African heritage. Kwanzaa is a lovely, colorful celebration that focuses on family and community and Bullard's brief text offers a vivid introduction to the holiday. Kevin is the youngest child in an extended family and he narrates each day's activities and the symbolic meaning behind each of them. Kevin's enthusiasm for the holiday is contagious and the colorful images of each day's activities illustrate the importance of the seven principles that make up the seven days of Kwanzaa. A simple activity and a list of additional sources to consult are included at the end of the text. Complementary learning material is available online; registration is required to access content, but will allow educators to easily adapt the text to a teaching series on winter holidays in the United States. This book is part of the "Fall and Winter Holidays" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
