KIRKUS REVIEW

Vibrant collages by the illustrator of Annabelle and the Big Slide (1989) portray a straightforward series of objects and celebrations, including not only the usual observances but Yom Ha'atzna'ut, the Israeli Independence Day. The several children in one family provide continuity; some of the entries contain familiar facts (at Chanukah, Maxie eats latkes), but others contain words that will be new to many (when ""Minnie eats lunch in the sukkah, she sniffs the sweet etrog and shakes the tall lulav""). Brief notes on the holidays and a glossary round out the informational value. Attractive and useful.
