From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up–In her thorough text, Henderson defines patriotic holidays as those dealing with aspects of democratic civic rights, responsibilities, and values consistent with the ideals laid out in the nations founding documents. Some of these days are legal public holidays, while others, such as 9/11, also called Patriot Day, are simply public observances. The book begins with a fascinating look at patriotism. Along with several definitions and views on it, the author explores different symbols of the U.S., including those of political parties, the cornucopia, the eagle, and the flag. She then considers each holiday in alphabetical order, describing any customs, songs, and foods associated with it; the history behind the observance; and a sampling of activities and observances around the country. Each discussion ends with a list of related Web sites and a bibliography. Pull quotes, sidebars, and fact boxes are found throughout, as are black-and-white photos and reproductions. The volume also contains almost 100 pages of useful primary documents related to holidays, including The Mayflower Compact; The Declaration of Independence; flag laws; and excerpts from diaries, letters, and speeches. Readers are sure to gain insight into the history of the U.S., for the history of a nations holidays is certainly a history of the country.–Anne L.
