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.

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.
