Reviews - What do customers think about America's Curious Ways: Holidays, Customs and Apple Pie?

Apple Pie Wonderful  May 10, 2005
All right, I admit I know Ms Ely personally and know how much she put of herself into this book. This personal achievement is a great little book to have on hand and a great gift to someone new to this country. I know a few new American citizens that will have this as a gift shortly.

I even learned a few new tidbits that I didnt know before and I have lived in my beloved USA all my life. Good on ya, Bev.
i thought i knew...  Feb 25, 2005
Americans normally just look at holidays as a way to get out of work and take a vacation- this book really makes those dates on the calender into actual celebrations.
Teacher's Reference  Jan 20, 2005
As a former elementary teacher, I would highly recommend this book for the classroom. It's a good reference book with thorough explanations regarding American holidays, traditions, and customs.
Informational  Dec 11, 2004
I found the book to be an easy and fun read. It was informational about our holidays and traditons. It would be helpful to teachers and visitors and new immigrants to this country.
