Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations from Children's Bookwatch on March 1, 2006

Cover: Chinese New Year

From the celebrations of the Chinese New Year to the romance of Valentine’s Day, Ann Heinrichs has written and illustrated a simply wonderful series of twelve books, each of which are dedicated to a different annual holiday. Each title provides young readers from kindergarten through third grade with a succinct, 32-page overview of history and traditions involved with each of the selected religious, patriotic, and traditional holidays and festivities. Each book in the series is enhanced with a reinforced library binding, profusely illustrated in full-color, providing a table of contents, informative sidebars, as well as holiday poems, recipes, crafts, and activities, along with a glossary of key words and phrases, sources for further research (including websites) and a comprehensive index. Ideal for both school and community library collections.
