Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall)
These books delve into the purpose and historical background of two national holidays. Independence provides an overview of the Declaration of Independence and the various ways the holiday has been celebrated from 1776 to today. Memorial traces the holiday's beginning as Decoration Day in 1868 through the many changes to it since. Photographs and period illustrations accompany the lackluster texts. [Review covers the following Holidays & Heroes titles: Let's Celebrate Independence Day and Let's Celebrate Memorial Day.] Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
