Activities, Crafts, Recipes, and More! The perfect new book to celebrate the fascinating holiday of Kwanzaa! If you don't know anything about this ancient traditional holiday from Africa then here is your chance to learn. Kids will find out about the unique culture and ritual involved. Fascinating did-you-know-facts from Kwanzaa Activities, Crafts, Recipes, and More: Kwanzaa gifts, called zawadi (zah-wah-dee), are made by hand. No matter which holiday you celebrate, you can now make them, too! Gleaming candles in the kinara, brightly wrapped zawadi, waving benderas, the scent of a delicious karamu being prepared, the sounds of Swahili.. these are some of my favorite sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Kwanzaa. This book is packed with wonderful stories, interesting facts, great crafts, and lots more for you to enjoy during the Kwanzaa season (or any time you just WANT it to be Kwanzaa!).
