Mommy, Is It Kwanzaa Yet? is a picturebook that teaches young people about the holiday of Kwanzaa--an event that celebrates the abolition of slavery and the remnants of culture African-Americans have retained from their African heritage. The text is of intermediate level, though it presents understanding of the holiday through a young person's eyes it does deal with some fairly advanced and abstract concepts. The artwork is very simple, akin to what a gifted child could create with basic materials, and reinforces the youth-appeal and identification message of this educational introduction.
