KIRKUS REVIEW

Hanukkah with its various celebrations and traditions is simply described in hard pages that offer flame-shaped cut-outs in gold foil to create a menorah on the left side with each successive turn of the page symbolizing the lighting of the eight individual candles. Bright, bold colors fill the plain, coloring-book style of outlined drawings that depict boy and girl saying the blessing, lighting of candles, Maccabee patriots, an almost empty oil jug, dreidel game, latkes and the giving of gifts and gelt (money). Emphasis is on family celebration and sharing: “Hanukkah is a time to celebrate our blessings and share them with each other.” Just the right size and amount of information for little ones eager to “turn the page to light the next candle.” (Board book. 1-3)
