Juneteenth (Holidays) – Booklist

Presenting information as straightforwardly as possible, this entry in the Holidays series centers around Juneteenth, a day that commemorates the end of slavery. A variety of festive photographs and a few pieces of period artwork break up the text and reinforce key concepts. In an age overloaded with tertiary holidays, here’s a fine book to help introduce a celebration that warrants a bigger public profile.

Brief chapters give readers broad summaries of these holidays–their origin or meaning, how they are celebrated, traditions today, and “important words.” Color photographs with descriptive captions give further explanations, while the texts are presented in simple sentences in a large font.
