"This book is relevant not only to today’s society," says Morales, "but the subject matter has been a fascination to all children of all religions and races for many ages."

"The Holiday Trilogy Collection" (published by AuthorHouse) invites young readers to rediscover the origins of their favorite catchy tunes. Through compelling stories, vibrant illustrations and enchanting rhythms, children are taught how Halloween, Hanukkah and Christmas came to have their own special days. The release is part of the new marketing push launched for the 2014 title.

"The Holiday Trilogy Collection" is the brainchild of three talented housewives: Anne Gilbert, Camille McCabe and Maria B. Morales. Camille and Anne wrote the script and lyrics. Morales, an accomplished pianist, 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.

"This book is relevant not only to today’s society," says Morales, "but the subject matter has been a fascination to all children of all religions and races for many ages."

Kids are taken into the fascinating realm of imagination through Hee-haw's exciting narration. Along comes the sweet jive of melodies that accompany every tale across the fields of England and Ireland to the beautiful city of Jerusalem. Songs, colors and music all come together to treat little kids to one unforgettable, lighthearted and enjoyable holiday read.
