From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-7-This introduction to the African-American celebration that takes place from December 26th to January 1st begins with a brief overview of the history of slavery and the civil rights movement in this country. Wilson touches on some of the contributions made to our culture by African civilizations and African Americans, and then goes on to explain the origins and meaning of Kwanzaa. He describes the seven principles that the holiday honors, using examples from African folklore and history to illustrate each one, and provides definitions and pronunciation guides for the many Swahili words. The text is easy to understand, although the illustrations vary in usefulness and clarity. Dolores Johnson's The Children's Book of Kwanzaa (Atheneum, 1996) covers similar material but goes into more depth and includes crafts and recipes. A serviceable addition.-E.M. c
