Editorial Reviews

"The tale radiates warmth and quietly builds up to the dramatic dragon dance and the traditional greeting of 'Gung Hay Fat Choy!' The collage illustrations, cut from paper with colorful Asian designs, also include paint and other media to capture the joyful celebrants. This is a clear introduction to the holiday that young children will enjoy in one-on-one or group read-alouds." -School Library Journal

 

"This one's a winner." -Kirkus Reviews

 

Praise for My First Kwanzaa:
"The simple text and colorful folkloric illustrations with vivid patterns make this a good book to share with young children." -School Library Journal

 

Praise for Over the Moon:
"An ebullient tribute for families whose members may have come from a faraway place." -Publishers Weekly

 

Praise for The Colors of Us:
"Katz's pencil-and-gouache pictures joyously convey the range of human pigmentation. Positive and useful." -School Library Journal

"Bold illustrations celebrate diversity with a child's open-hearted sensibility and a mother's love." -Kirkus Reviews
