Kids BookBuzz reviews Holidays With a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations

Holidays with a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations is the story of a boy named Alex, who wakes up on Christmas Day and gets a puppy named Zipper! When his grandparents come into the house, the dog runs out, and Alex and his mom chase after him down the road. Alex sees a house and a man notices them and tells them that he and his family are celebrating Hanukkah and what all happens during this holiday. Alex and his mom keep walking and they find another family who are celebrating Las Posadas and they are from Guatemala. Then they find another family who are celebrating Kwanzaa and learn about that holiday. Alex finally finds Zipper and they make it home.

I learned a lot from this book; my mom also said that she didn’t know everything about the different holidays, either. I was confused at the end of the book though when during the middle part, Alex’s mom said that they celebrated Christmas and Jesus as their savior, but then at the very end Alex said that his dog was the best Christmas gift of all. That doesn’t make sense. This is a good story to read at Christmastime or anytime.

Product Details

Through empathy and understanding, we can create a more inclusive world. But empathy and understanding are not purely intellectual—they require application. In the Demystifying Diversity Workbook, Biracial journalist Daralyse Lyons offers tangible tools for moving beyond biases and increasing one's capacity for connection. This workbook is meant to act as a companion to Demystifying Diversity: Embracing our Shared Humanity, in which Daralyse Lyons reveals her most important takeaways from her interviews with more than 100 individuals about a variety of topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Here, you are invited to go deeper, to move from awareness to action and to develop your capacity for authentic connection. It is in this space that empathy and equity become possible.

"We're Venn diagrams in Venn diagrams. And so, if you can't find those connections, it means you're not looking."
-- Alisa Kraut, assistant curator at the National Museum of American Jewish History

"Every single one of us is personally implicated in this."
-- Cinder Kuss, liberation and social justice activist

"I don't think you can be an honest observer of the human condition without being overwhelmed at times by the cruelty that gets visited onpeople; this seems to be so counter to who we are. We're beautiful.Every one of us is beautiful. There is nothing like a human being in this world that we experience. We are remarkable."
-- Dennis Moritz, poet and playwright

"Demystifying Diversity: Embracing Our Humanity is an important step in our collective, arduous, complex journey towards inclusivity."
-- Kyle V. Hiller, award winning arts & culture journalist, interdisciplinary artist, author of The Recital
