Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS. With bright, clear collage illustrations that focus on one young preschooler and her extended family and friends, this small picture book introduces thewanzaa holiday. A double-page spread for each of the seven days of the holiday shows and tells the Seven Principles, from Working Together and Creativity to Faith and Purpose. Africa is mentioned a lot (though not specific countries or nations), and a final note explains that the name wanzaa comes from a Swahili word for first fruits. A useful pronunciation guide is included, as are clear explanations of the candles, gifts, crafts, fruits, and vegetables that are part of the celebration. The specifics, the simple words, and the active pictures combine to convey the wider sense of community that is the essence of the holiday. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2003 Booklist"
