Here is the summary from Goodreads:
These beautifully illustrated, multicultural books teach children about the holidays and why we celebrate them. In addition to telling a good story, each colorful book contains songs, poems, crafts, recipes, fingerplays, and other activities that can be used during classtime.
Wow! It was a lot of great information packed into a small book! The book followed a boy and his family as they celebrated Kwanzaa.
I was disappointed in that the book didn't contain songs, poems, crafts, recipes, fingerplays and other activities like it said it would in the summary, but it was a really good story. I also would have liked a glossary with a pronunciation guide, but that's just the teacher in me, I like having that resource available.
All in all, its a great book to include in your multicultural holidays collection.
