Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.5 / 7.0

This book does a great job of simply explaining Kwanzaa through they eyes of a boy. I like that the book has extra information and facts to go along with the story, as well as a glossary and instructions to make a Kwanzaa craft at the end of the book.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.0 / 7.0

This book is a nice introduction to Kwanzaa, and the basics of how the celebration progresses. There are additional facts about Kwanzaa and African American heritage on many of the page, as well as the swahili words for each of the seven day. I found the way the book is organized into chapters (to clarify, this is still a picture book) distracting, and that it broke up what little story there was.
