Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations from School Library Journal on October 1, 2006

These nicely formatted titles offer a paragraph or two of information per spread, plenty of colorful illustrations, and frequent sidebars. The texts are well written, although there seems to be an excess of exclamation marks sprinkled throughout. There are no photographs, which, particularly in the case of Mardi Gras, detracts from the interest considerably. Both artists have distinctive and appealing styles. A recipe and craft, as well as a short glossary and suggestions for further information in print and on the Web, are included. These books do not offer anything specifically new but they do present the material for this audience in an attractive, accessible way.
