Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The books in the "National Holidays" series follow the same general format. There is an opening note to parents and teachers that states, "This series supports national social studies standards related to understanding events that celebrate the values and principles of American democracy." Even though this book is meant for very young readers, it is set up along the lines of books that older students would use for research and reference. It has a table of contents, a glossary entitled "Words to Know, references that include both books and Internet sites, and an index that also serves as a word list. The text consists of simple declarative sentences accompanied by full-page illustration that are in most cases photographs. It tells readers that Labor Day honors those who work, and it is celebrated on the first Monday in September. This holiday was first celebrated in 1882 and became a national holiday in 1894. The balance of the text discusses ways that the holiday is celebrated noting that for most, it is a day to relax and have fun. 2003, Pebble Books/CapstonePress,
