Each of these series books contains a coherent overview of its subject, offering a look at the origins of the celebration and the customs associated with it. The books' sometimes condescending text and poorly organized material (especially in King) detract from their usefulness. A photo or other illustration appears on every page, and each book features a relevant craft project. Bib., glos., ind. [Review covers these Finding Out about Holidays titles: Cinco de Mayo, Martin Luther King, Jr.,, and St. Patrick's Day.]

Gr 2-4-The story of St. Patrick is told, with legend and fact delineated. The significance of the color green is explained, as is that of shamrocks, four-leaf clovers, and pots of gold. Parades, festivals, athletic events, and special foods are all discussed. The text is clear and engaging, and the attractive color photos, reproductions, and drawings add interest and detail. The simple craft project seems a bit young for the audience. Gail Gibbons's St. Patrick's Day (Holiday, 1994) is for younger children. Landau's book is a more-than-satisfactory addition to holiday collections.-Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
