Especially recommended for young readers ages 5 to 12, Habari Gani?/What's The News? is a picture book artfully written by Sundaira Morninghouse and charmingly illustrated by Jody Kim. The theme is the African-American holiday of Kwanzaa and how seven year old Kia and her family celebrate from December 26th to January 1st. "Habari Gani" is the greeting as each day of Kwanzaa unfolds and the seven principles of Kwanzaa emerge within the fabric of Kia's family and community. Habari Gani?/What's The News? will prove to be a very popular addition to school and community library African-American, multicultural, and ethnic holiday collections.
