Booklist Review

Gr. 1-4. Additions to an ongoing series [BKL Jl 93], these helpful titles incorporate live-action and animated footage with voice-over narrations. The first title introduces Hanukkah through a modern-day family celebration of Hanukkah. Then, still pictures, which give way to minimal animation, relate how the Jews, under Judah Maccabee, regained their temple from the Greeks, proclaiming their freedom to worship by lighting a lamp that miraculously burned eight days. Next, Kwanzaa describes the African harvest festival with some pleasing illustrations, but this title includes more live-action footage that highlights the seven principles observed, the special objects used, and the clothing worn by contemporary African Americans during the seven-day observance. For schools and libraries always in need of holiday fare, these serviceable, informative productions will come in handy during December. ~--Nancy ~McCray
