KIRKUS REVIEW

Families and schools can draw on this wonderful, generous guide to shape their own Kwanzaa celebrations. First it introduces the concept of Kwanzaa as a festival based on ancient African customs blended with African-American, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro- Latin traditions in a "warm cultural stew." The seven principles of the holiday, the Nguzo Saba, are listed; the seven sections that follow--one for each day of Kwanzaa--include a story and illustration that illuminate one principle. Bryan, Carole Byard, Floyd Cooper, Leo and Diane Dillon, Jan Spivey Gilchrist, Jonathan Green, and Jerry Pinkney each contribute art. The Gosses (The Baby Leopard, 1989, not reviewed, etc.) also include recipes for the feast that follows the storytelling, as well as instructions for games, making clothes, and designing cards.  (Anthology. 5+)
