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