Reviews
"This story strikes a balance between the celebratory aspects of the holiday and its historical origins. The strength of family and the power of community come through clearly." -- Kirkus Reviews
"This story offers a poignant and deeply meaningful look at the holiday through the eyes of one extended family. Tripplett's text is a heartfelt ode to the holiday... O'Brien's smooth, emotion-packed illustrations are the perfect counterpart, uplifting the text and sharing a story of their own."

-- School Library Journal


"[A]n inclusive portrait of a close-knit contemporary community in conversation with history's resonances." --Publishers Weekly
