Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway
Children learn about important American holidays in the “Let’s Celebrate” Pebble Plus series such as Groundhog Day, President’s Day, The 100th Day of School, Earth Day, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A very intimate, full color photograph on the cover features a young girl touching the reflective Vietnam Memorial wall with tender compassion. Every page brings live shots of patriotic locations, citizens, and events. Describing Decoration Day in the 1800s, which honored Civil War soldiers has a colorful, detailed etching. Very basic text in a large font with short sentences targets Early Readers. In addition, word count, grade, and early-intervention level is provided below the index. Every page invites engaging, interactive ways to celebrate no matter where individuals live or groups congregate to bring their own ceremonies to the forefront to honor fallen heroes. Flags at half-staff show respect. Energetic parades with marching bands celebrate freedom. Bright flowers and U.S. flags on graves give thanks. Students in classrooms around the country write active duty soldiers to encourage and share grateful hearts. Family picnics and lively sporting activities remind citizens of the liberty passed on to every generation. A table of contents, a “Thank-You Activity,” read more section, Internet sites, glossary, and index create a simple reference book to help youngsters discover and participate in major celebrations every year. Reviewer: Susan Treadway; Ages 4 to 8.
