School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6--Thanksgiving and Halloween both introduce the holiday and then outline its historical roots and traditions in a textbook-like fashion. Short sections present a wealth of information in a concentrated format interspersed with full-color photographs or historical reproductions that extend the text. Symbols and activities receive abbreviated treatment. Herda's Halloween (Watts, 1983) presents a broader range of information in a more appealing style, but Sandak's title will be useful for holiday projects and report needs. The same can be said of Baldwin's Thanksgiving (Watts, 1983). Penner's Thanksgiving Book (Hastings House, 1985) emphasizes the role of the Native Americans and discusses Thanksgiving customs around the world. Jewish Holidays offers an overview of the seasons of celebration around which the Jewish calendar revolves. While the presentation and style is strictly factual, Turck's narrative is lively, and the photographs add information and warmth to the text. Celebration: The Book of Jewish Festivals (Dutton, 1987), however, has a broader scope, greater visual appeal, and is more comprehensive. All three series entries will assist in meeting the holiday research/project needs of students, but will be of limited use and interest to general audiences. --Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
