School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-Gr 1-Each holiday is described in the simplest and broadest of terms, with a few specific aspects highlighted. Readers are told, for instance, that there are seven Kwanzaa ideas and seven symbols, but only one of each is even named. There are no pronunciation guides for the Swahili or Hebrew words. Visually, the books are appealing, small in size with clean layouts, large type, plenty of white space, and good-quality color photographs. All three titles are available in English/Spanish editions, which could be useful for students just beginning to learn either language. Julie Murray's Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa (all ABDO, 2003) are better choices.-M. A. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
