K-Gr 2-Fictional children describe family celebrations in these volumes that are suitable for either individual or group reading. In each title, short chapters have double-page layouts that showcase preparations, discuss the featured event's history and origins, and describe how the narrator's family celebrates it. Religious aspects are covered in a general way that emphasizes history and tradition. Paragraph-length sidebars provide supplemental details. All the cartoon illustrations are nicely done, with bright colors and animated characters-although those drawn by Saunders are the most engaging. The books conclude with instructions for a simple craft or recipe. Appealing selections. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Each book in the Fall and Winter Holidays series features a child narrator describing his or her holiday preparations and experiences. This personal narrative is enhanced with side graphics that include general facts, such as “People have worn costumes at Halloween time for many years. Some of the earliest costumes were made from animal skins.” The content walks a careful line between respect for religious traditions and noting that religions often adopted earlier traditions. The newer holiday of Kwanzaa is featured in Kevin’s Kwanzaa, capturing the enthusiasm of a child waiting for his turn to light a candle on the final night. The large, square-sized, cheery illustrations are clear enough to be viewed by groups. New readers can also appreciate the back matter, which includes a simple craft. Preschool-Grade 2. --Susan Dove Lempke
