Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Brief chapters give readers broad summaries of these holidays-their origin or meaning, how they are celebrated, traditions today, and "important words." Color photographs with descriptive captions give further explanations, while the texts are presented in simple sentences in a large font. Easter gives background information and explains the celebration through secular and sacred symbols and traditions: lilies, bunnies, Fabergé eggs, and PEEPS, among others. Juneteenth provides the most complete information, introducing the Civil War, slavery, and typical activities and food to honor the day. Saint Patrick's Day offers a glance at Irish culture, symbols, and the history of the holiday and how it changed over time, but readers will need to search suggested web links about St. Patrick to find out more about the man and why he is revered. Each book contains a websites area that directs readers to links on the publisher's site but not all of them are designed for younger children. Additional purchases as needed by topic.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX
