KIRKUS REVIEW

Sibling bunnies Violet and Simon do not remember celebrating Hanukkah last year and are excited to learn from Mama and Papa that the holiday will begin at sundown. Simon wants to light all the candles and blow them out, but Papa places the menorah in the window for all to see and explains one candle is lit each night of the week. Grandma makes delicious-smelling crispy latkes fried in oil and Grandpa teaches the dreidel game. For this rabbit family, it now truly feels like a “hoppy Hanukkah.” Howarth’s soft, bright illustrations of an extended floppy-eared family offer details of a Judaic home in this gentle introduction to the rituals of a traditional celebration that young families can follow as they create a Hanukkah atmosphere in their own homes. (Picture book. 2-4)
