School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Each title includes a brief history of the holiday, followed by suggestions for foods, decorations, crafts, and activities for a party. Christmas has full-color photographs, an interesting wreath made from old jigsaw puzzle pieces, plus several suggestions for foods to serve, but only the simplest recipe for hot chocolate. It ends with the suggestion that guests bring items to donate to charity. Hanukkah includes a recipe for potato pancakes, a craft stick Star of David and a wood-block menorah. Lynette suggests acting out the Hanukkah story and singing songs, though she does not include any lyrics or music. Adequate additions.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2011.
