PreS-Gr 1–Each book begins with a list of “Picture Words” related to the holiday, followed by a simple text combined with pictures to describe how people celebrate. Repetition of action words makes these books somewhat useful for beginning readers, e.g., “We hang the [lights]. We hang the [stockings].” However, as with many books for this audience, there is very little explanation of what these holidays are about aside from a minimal definition in the glossary. It is also notable that in Hanukkah, no mention is made of the oil that is central to the holiday. Large, clear photographs face each page of text. Aside from the appeal of the rebus format, these titles are merely additional.Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library

Hanukkah explains the meaning behind lighting the menorah and includes Hebrew songs and activities. Each title ends with a “Joining in the Spirit of . . .” section, which presents four tips for making the holiday memorable.While the cartoon art feels a bit dated and photos may have enhanced the overall package, the text is accessible for early elementary-age students and covers both history and customs, making this a solid all-round introduction to holidays. Grades K-3. --Ann Kelley
