More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Labor Day? Is it just another long weekend, or is there a purpose behind the holiday? This textbook is full of interesting information including the history of the holiday, description of the worker's conditions in the late 1800's, holiday symbols, how we celebrate the holiday today, crafts and recipes, and a holiday quiz. The book even explains the correlation between the Department of Labor (created in 1913) and the holiday. Interesting facts, websites, and other reading materials are also mentioned in this book. The photographs of workers, past and present, are helpful to the text. Children will quickly gain an understanding about the holiday and why it is an American tradition. The book is in a format that younger children will be able to use to practice research skills by looking up information in the glossary, index, and table of contents. Part of the "American Holidays" series. 2004, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Totally uninspired approaches to these holidays. The texts are easy to read and most spreads have full-page photos, but the material is extremely limited and not interesting. For example, Labor Day presents a confusion of material on unions, workers' poor treatment in factories, and the establishment of the holiday. In all of the titles, "Did You Know?" sidebars add more clutter than information. Crafts, a recipe, and a facts page are also included. Despite the need for books on holidays, pass these by.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
