An easy-to-read and understand explanation of Kwanzaa features images of a contemporary U.S. family observing each of the seven days in activities recognizable to today's children. Emphasis is placed on Kwanzaa as "an American holiday inspired by African traditions. not intended as a religious, political, or heroic holiday, nor is it a substitute for Christmas." The striking full-color artwork for this 9 1/4" by 11 1/4" picture book was prepared using scratchboard and oil pastels.
