PreS-Gr. 2. Books in the new, inexpensive paperback Holiday Classics series are extremely uneven, and it's no surprise that authors aren't identified. The texts are bland and generic; the art is greeting-card style with glamorized, idyllic African American characters who bat their eyelashes and smile and smile. Over the River is a playful Thanksgiving celebration, but a companion book It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Kwanzaa lacks the rich historical detail about the ceremony that so many other Kwanzaa books provide. Yes, African American kids want to find themselves and their families in traditional stories; it's certainly nice to see Jack in dreadlocks. But holiday traditions are more than sweet messages and upbeat role models, and there are many excellent African American versions that offer fuller text and much better illustrations. Hazel Rochman

"This reissue...is more than justified by Manson’s gorgeous colored woodcut illustrations, which conjure everything that was solid and charming about 19th-century New England life."-New York Times Book Review
"Manson’s vibrant, textured illustrations capture the verve and enthusiasm of Child’s well-known holiday poem, feeling as old-fashioned as the original 1844 verse and yet timelessly festive..."-Horn Book Magazine, Cynthia K. Ritter
“Recalling a simpler time, this book captures the poem’s sense of excitement and celebration. Readers who join the family en route to Grandfather’s house will observe many details about life in the 19th century. . . . Manson’s woodcuts, painted in the colors of a snowy evening, lovingly depict the wintry countryside.”- School Library Journal (School Library Journal)
