Review by Booklist Reviews

The colorful books in the Holidays & Heroes series present overviews of the origins, history, and current practices associated with specific holidays. There's no cookie-cutter approach here. DeRubertis organizes each book in a way that suits its topic, while writing clearly and using short sentences effectively. Each double-page spread includes several brief paragraphs of text and two or three well-chosen pictures, including portraits, period illustrations, and photos. Besides explaining the process and the importance of voting, Election Day lays out the gradual expansion of American voting rights through the elimination or reduction of restrictions based on religion, property holding, race, sex, national origin, and age. An attractive, informative series. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
