August 15, 2015

Anne A. Gilbert, a 1957 graduate of DePauw University, is co-author of The Holiday Trilogy Collection. The book "invites young readers to rediscover the origins of their favorite catchy tunes," according to a synopsis. "Through compelling stories, vibrant illustrations and enchanting rhythms, children are taught how Halloween, Hanukkah and Christmas came to have their own special days."

Gilbert wrote the script and lyrics with Camille McCabe; Maria B. Morales "composed the music to the three songs that accompany the three individual books. True facts about each holiday are brought to life by an adorable donkey called Hee-Haw. The book is beautifully illustrated with three catchy tunes and lyrics to keep a child mesmerized."
