Happy All-idays!

Little Simon. Sept. 2022. 16p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781665921411.
PreS–The title refers to three of the holidays celebrated toward the end of the year in the United States: Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa. There is also a page introducing Chrismukkah, a holiday described as being celebrated with “eight candles and a tree.” Disappointingly, this book does not provide any details on these holidays, and the pictures offer only the barest depictions of what families might do for them. There are also several other holidays celebrated around the end of the year that should be included in a book using “all-idays” in the title.
VERDICT Although it might be a cute stocking-stuffer, this book does not add anything to a library collection.
