Kwanzaa begins tomorrow, December 26th, and runs through January 1st. Over at the blog for the Education and Social Science Library at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign are some children's books for Kwanzaa. (Scroll down on the page.) Then, the Food Network dishes up some recipes for the holiday.
Each day in Kwanzaa features a different guiding principle. The one for December 26th is umoja, or unity. Sosu's Call, a picture book by Meshack Asare, would be a good book for the day, although it's not about the holiday. In it, a West African community comes together after a devastating storm.
