This is an ideal book to introduce young children to Hanukkah, and a stunning keepsake for family celebrations.
In this sumptuous pop-up book, author Sara Freedland recounts the dramatic events that took place in Jerusalem more than 2,000 years ago, and Sue Clarke's gilded three-dimensional collages illustrate the miraculous story. Freedland and Clarke also explore the many traditions now celebrated in remembrance of those events, and the book includes a pop-up menorah, traditional songs to sing, and even a pop-out dreidl and coins to play with! A lively way to learn about and celebrate Hanukkah.

Taking readers back in time to the year 168 B.C., this beautiful book is a wonderful, interactive introduction to the history of Hanukkah. The past comes brilliantly alive on each page of the volume, a clever, three-dimensional rendition of the dramatic events that led to the creation of this joyous holiday. Along the way, there are accessible explanations of the key traditions that have grown up around Hanukkah, including the lighting of the menorah and the dreidel game, along with holiday songs, latke recipes, and even a paper dreidel that children can assemble.
