Reviews

The Horn Book Guide

“Children from different cultural groups describe their families’ celebrations. Information about the occasions is included in the simplistic stories, but text boxes provide more details than the young narrators do. Bright, cheerful illustrations will draw readers to these introductions. Birthday focuses on U.S. customs but mentions other traditions. An activity concludes each volume.”

Library Media Connection

“In this well-presented series, young children are introduced to important holidays that their friends celebrate. Each book tells a story about a child celebrating the holiday with explanations within the story or in text boxes. Different facets of the holidays are shown: religious, cultural, traditional activities, etc. The cartoon-type illustrations add to the topics and portray multiethnic groups. An activity is included in each book. Lerner e-source is available for this series; it consists of a suggested lesson plan and two worksheets.” —Library Media Connection
