I ordered this book because I want to share with my students an easy to read book about what is Kwanzaa and how families celebrate this events. I like the writing and the pictures. I will be using it in my classroom this December as we learn about different holidays around the world.
The book tells a story with a good plot, Khari can not come home for Kwanzaa because of a snow storm. Kayla, his younger sister, is disappointed because they have always celebrated Kwanzaa together. She uses the principles of Kwanzaa to cheer herself up, dresses in African Clothes, makes a scrap book, and sets the goal of being a scientist like her big brother. The book provides examples of how to light the candles of the Kinara on each day of Kwanzaa- Umoja (black), Kugichagulia (Red), Ujima (Green), Ujamma (Red), Nia (Green), Kuumba (Red), Imani (green.). The images will help people who celebrate Kwanzaa perform the ceremony correctly. Yet, the book does not give the correct meaning Harbi gani (What's the news)?The Kwanzaa Coloring Book
I learned a lot from reading this book with my son. It has us thinking about doing Kwanzaa next year. Love and believe in what it stands for. I feel it teaches up and encourages us to be better human beings.
I use this book at home and when I guest speak in schools about how Kwanzaa can help all of us regardless of background. This is the one book that you need for that special time of year.
Me and my daughter read this book together and it was a great supplement to the lesson she had at school on Kwanzaa. I learned a lot ore about the holiday myself.
Beautiful illustrations and well written. This book shows children this wonderful way African American families can celebrate a holiday all their own.
What better way to bring families together than during the Holidays! Kwanzaa is fun and beautiful. Love the way this book brings this out.
