Maya uses a calendar to help identify America's national holidays. She begins in January with New Year's Day and shows how several ethnic groups celebrate it. Mentions Martin Luther King Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Offers a short explanation of each one. Part of Primary Citizenship Series.
This is very good for primary grade students. It gives a good description of the various American Holidays. The photography is very visually interesting.
Really great review for 2nd grade
