KIRKUS REVIEW

To children just beginning to read, holidays are of paramount importance for it is at this time the adult calendar assumes meaning in their lives. Here is a list of holidays--New Year's Day, Lincoln's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Succoth, Hanukkah, Passover, Valentine's Day, Arbor Day, Flag Day, Halloween, United Nations Day. The background and festivities of each occasion is described in simple terms which provide the child with a miscellany of historical and cultural data.
