Multicultural Holiday Books – Kwanzaa

Sure, the holidays are over but you can always keep this multicultural holiday book in mind for future use:

My First Kwanzaa Book by Deborah M. Newton Chocolate, Illustrated by Cal Massey

My https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0439129265/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=Unconventionallibrarian-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=0439129265&linkId=fd25636f14fd74e23687d41605f7b317 First Kwanzaa Book by Deborah M Newton Chocolate

The illustrations in this delightful book are reminiscent of the bright colors of Kwanzaa.

This picture book should be shared with children of all ages and cultures because it’s a wonderful

way to highlight other holidays. And according to the way I think, one more way to enjoy good food and good friends!

“When mama says, ‘It’s Kwanzaa time,’ we tell family stories each night to make the holiday special.”

p.s. The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa listed in the back of the book seem like

a good practice to live by:

Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Purpose, Creativity, and Faith

I give this book 4 paws!
