Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Spring)
These nonfiction series books each introduce a holiday. On double-page spreads, a full-page color photo faces a couple of sentences of easy-to-read text. First report writers will appreciate the bare-bones information, but the presentation is dull and incomplete: ""People remember Ireland on Saint Patrick's Day. They celebrate with their family and friends."" A short reading list and list of websites are appended. Glos., ind. Copyright 2003 Horn Book Guide Reviews
