I have paired this with a short video of a family celebrating Kwanzaa. You can find a good one if you search "Sesame Street Kwanzaa" online.
Li'l Rabbit thinks how Granna Rabbit told him that Kwanzaa is a special time when we help each other. That gives Li'l Rabbit an idea. He decides to bring Granna a special treat for Karamu. As he walks through the forest searching for the right treat, he runs into many of Granna Rabbit's friends. When he tells them Granna is sick, they all want to do something to help.
Li'l Rabbit spends all day trying to find something for Granna, but doesn't find anything at all. When he returns empty-handed, he has a big surprise--All of Granna's friends came with treats of their own. Li'l Rabbit is still sad though since he was the only one who didn't bring anything. Granna Rabbit reminds him that if he hadn't gone off looking for Karamu, it never would have found its way to them.
This fun story reminds everyone of the true meaning of Kwanzaa--coming together to help others. The repetitive lines in the book make for an interactive read and the illustrations by Shane W. Evans are bright and vibrant with a cartoon like feel sure to entertain. If young readers wish to learn more about Kwanzaa, they'll even find The seven principles of Kwanzaa listed at the end of the book. A must have for any Kwanzaa collection.
