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.
3.75 / 7.0

This story incorporates a lot of explanation about Kwanzaa for those who aren’t as familiar with it. It was a little long and I’d probably rate it low for re-readability. The illustrations are bright, beautiful, and and reflect the African-American culture.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are gorgeous! It is definitely on the long side, but it’s a fine story explaining the principles of Kwanzaa and emphasizing the bond between siblings.
