Reviews

"Well-paced, the story incorporates the Kwanzaa values without spelling them out too much. Minter's attractively composed, dramatic painted woodcuts, with strong community images and lively, silhouetted figures, root the story in a sun-drenched, magical landscape that will draw children even after repeated readings."
"A fine choice for a Kwanzaa gift, and a first choice for most school and public-library collections."

Kirkus Reviews
"Well-paced, the story incorporates the Kwanzaa values without spelling them out too much."
