Why It's A Holiday

Q: Why did you write WHY IT’S A HOLIDAY?

A: I stayed home from work on Labor Day, a holiday. My son started to ask all sorts of questions about what makes a holiday and their customs. This was my first book, published in 1960, before there were other holidays – Martin Luther King Day, Earth Day, Kwanza. You can find out about these holidays by clicking More About Holidays.
