No Easter or Christmas mentioned
I was really looking forward to this book because I love using my calendar. We had a lot of good discussion throughout the book but I was disappointed that both Easter and Christmas were left out of the book. I understand that not everyone celebrates these holidays but there was a 2 page spread on Halloween and other holidays that not everyone celebrates.

How do you skip St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Election Day and Christmas but include Juneteenth?

All Year Round
In general the book is good for learning about the days of week, seasons, months. While I get Easter/Passover not being assigned a month, because they change, December ALWAYS has Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza. I understand if you don't want to put just Christmas, because not everyone celebrates it, but it's still a pretty big deal to just ignore all together! All that is mentioned for December is New Year's Eve. That aside, good book for my child to learn the "routine" of the year and week.

Not a Christian calendar
I'm guessing the reason this title did not include Easter, Christmas, Hanukkah, et al. is so the author/publisher presented a non-secular book for everyone, not just Christians.

It WAS good........
This was a great book until we realized Easter and Christmas were left out... it includes "Juneteenth" but not Easter or Christmas?????? I have removed this book from our library.

Agenda driven
A children’s book about the months and days should include holidays like Easter and Christmas.  While civil-rights and  slavery are important topics to teach a child, a book about days of the week and months of the year is not the place to do it.  It’s far too complex of a topic for 3 and 4 year olds to grasp. As a parent, I teach my children how to include and love their neighbor before exposing them to the atrocities that have happened and still are happening here at home and abroad.

We love this book
Despite the upset that some others have shared, I came to say that we personally love this book. It is a great way for my daughter to learn the days of the week, the order of the year, how time and seasons pass ect. When we come to a month that doesnt mention some of the traditions we celebrate, I use it as an opportunity for discussion! "What else do we do in December? (CHRISTMAS!)" .."January is a special month for our family, why?, (OUR BIRTHDAYS!)"

I also really love the diversity of the characters, one of my favorite things Bout UBAM books in general is their passion for representation!
