I normally like the books in this series, but this one wasn't so great. As someone who has lived in the United States her whole life, I feel that I have a pretty good idea about our cultural traditions, and some of the info in here was just...off. It wasn't even because of regional differences. Plus I feel a little bad that Flag Day and other holidays no one celebrates made it in there, but Hanukkah didn't- and I don't even celebrate it!
