K-Gr 2- These books outline the history and traditions of these holidays and include related songs, crafts, further reading, and Web resources to accompany the texts. Although clear and filled with facts, the writing is unimaginative and tedious. Simple cartoon drawings don't add any excitement, depicting images such as a single hat and firecrackers for Presidents' Day with no background or captions and headstones for Memorial Day. It is difficult to imagine children choosing these books for pleasure reading or for reports. These titles are cause for little celebration.-Sarah O'Holla, Village Community School, New York CityCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
