From Booklist:

In only 48 pages, this Building America series entry offers a fine overview of the holidays and festivities of the colonial period and provides a sense of the social and political atmosphere throughout the newly developing region. Readers will learn of antiquated celebrations such as Candlemas Day and Guy Fawkes Day and discover which holiday traditions have persisted since that time and which have altered over the years. Within the description of each holiday, which usually takes up less than one page, are references to the ways different ethnic or religious groups have contributed traditions based on their native cultures. Full-color illustrations and a single-page "FYI" article add to the content, which students are likely to find both easy to read and interesting. A glossary, a chronology, and a calendar of holidays are appended. Roger Leslie
