Harambee--it's Kwanzaa! With joyful songs; recipes for delicious dishes (such as Jambalaya Salad); evocative art; and simple, poetic explanations of principles and symbols, this African-American holiday comes beautifully to life. With stunning stepped pages that feature a kente cloth pattern and pretty foil accents on the cover, it's an eye-catching package. Day by day, the images capture the warmth and togetherness of the week-long celebration, from a beaming little boy and his parents holding the traditional basket of fruit to three youngsters weaving their mkeka, or straw mat. Candles are lighted, stories told, symbolic ears of corn purchased, and handmade gifts or books given. And, throughout, the happiness of people pulling together to make things better shines forth.
