Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2--Each book details the history of the holiday, sharing past events that shaped today's celebration. Columbus Day salutes the spirit of discovery while emphasizing that there were people already in the Americas. Labor Day reminds readers that the labor-union movement brought about laws keeping children out of the workplace and in school. Remembering Dr. King's dream is the theme of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The titles have two-to-three lines of text per page and boldfaced words are defined in a glossary. Unfortunately, all three books are oversimplified and try to cover too much information. Black-and-white and full-color photographs and reproductions, at least one per page, illustrate each volume.--Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
