Today’s holiday book review is My First Kwanzaa by Karen Katz. Here’s what it’s about:
During the seven days of Kwanzaa we celebrate the importance of family, friends, and community. This warm and lively introduction to a very special holiday will help even the youngest children join in!
Author and illustrator Karen Katz kicks off a wonderful new series of picture books for the very young with My First Kwanzaa. The series will offer a simple and fun way to get familiar with the traditions of holiday celebrations from different cultures.
Perfect book to introduce kids to Kwanzaa. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the book is easy for kids to follow. I love that Swahili words are included in the text along with their phonetic spelling.
My Grade: C+
