Synthia Saint James wrote and illustrated this story for children to simply understand the holiday Kwanzaa.


Excerpt

The day after Christmas, Kwanzaa begins. We celebrate the seven days of Kwanzaa and the seven principles.



Professional Reviews

School Library Journal
One or two sentences per page describe the seven days and the seven principles of Kwanzaa: "On the third day of Kwanzaa we celebrate the principle of Ujima (oo-JEE-mah), which means 'working together'" The opposite page features an illustration of a group of people and the words, "Together we know that..." Lift the flap to reveal a large structure the people have built and the words, "we can get things done." The simple statements are enforced by Saint James's flat, graphic-style illustrations that are characterized by solid blocks of color, stylized compositions, and featureless faces. An attractive teaching tool to introduce the concepts to young audiences. -S.P.
