Grade 2-5 This collection of eight Hanuk kah stories, one for each day of the hol iday, is unique because each of the sto ries takes place in a different country. The settings are Israel, Mexico (where some Syrian Jews have emigrated), Ar gentina, the United States, France, In dia, Morocco, and the Soviet Union. The special customs and styles of Ha nukkah menorahs are woven into each tale. These stories show that the mean ing of the holiday is the same every where: a reminder that the freedom to worship as one chooses is a precious right that all people must keep alive. Shaded blue-and-white illustrations lead readers into each story, each of which is simply told and filled with fam ily warmth. Ruth Shire, Mount Ver non Pubic Library, N.Y.
