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. (Picture book. 3- 7)
