ST. PAUL, Minn. - July 29, 2021 - PRLog -- Author Dr. Artika R. Tyner announced the upcoming release of her new children's book, "Kwanzaa (Traditions & Celebrations)." The book explores what Kwanza is, its origins, how it's celebrated, and its meaning in African-American culture.

The book will officially be released on Aug. 1, 2021 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon. It's offered in a hardcover, paperback and Kindle edition. Written in English, the 32-page book is beautifully illustrated and appropriate for reading ages 5-8 in first and second grade.

Readers will discover the tenets of Kwanzaa and why it's an important cultural celebration for African-Americans.
