9780792259244: Holidays Around the World: Celebrate Hanukkah: With Light, Latkes, and Dreidels

In Celebrate Hanukkah Deborah Heiligman welcomes readers to a holiday celebrated by Jewish communities around the world.

The vivid photography of National Geographic illustrates the joyous celebrations of Jewish people around the world—including Ghana, Uganda, India, Israel, Peru, the United States and Poland, as they light menorahs, spin dreidels, and make latkes.

The richly informative back matter details many facts, such as the story of U.S. astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman, who brought a menorah and a dreidel on his Space Shuttle mission in 1993. Hoffman observed the traditional spinning of the dreidel, but wisely left the menorah unlit in the proximity of several thousand liters of rocket fuel! Also included are the author's sure-to-please latke recipe, Hanukkah blessings, and a Hanukkah song.

A note from Rabbi Shira Stern, the book's consultant, sets the holiday in its global religious and cultural context.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.

About the Author:

Deborah Heiligman is the award-winning author of 15 children's books. She specializes in simplifying complex subjects for young people, particularly in the areas of science and social studies. She lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

This offering from the Holidays around the World series introduces children to the Jewish Festival of Lights. Heiligman recounts the holiday's history and origins and describes how it is celebrated today--with candles, special foods such as potato latkes, and games such as dreidel. The main text is succinct and appropriate for reading aloud; the detailed appendix features directions for lighting a menorah, prayers, a recipe for latkes, instructions for playing dreidel, a bibliography, a glossary, and a note from a subject expert. Decorating the pages are numerous crisp, full-color photos depicting celebrations in countries as diverse as Israel, India, Peru, Uganda, Italy, Korea, and the U.S. An attractive, informative title that will be welcomed in any library.
