"December 26th through January first will never be the same for seven-year-old Kia and her family. This year, the Edwards are celebrating Kwanzaa, the only indigenous African-American holiday in the U.S. 'Habari Gani' replaces 'Hi,' and as each day unfolds, Kia experiences the seven principles of Kwanzaa woven into the fabric of her family and community life. With Kia, we learn that Kwanzaa is a cultural and political celebration of the African American experience."
A delightful full-color children's story set during the Kwanzaa holiday.
