About this title

Synopsis:

A Jewish family shares cherished Hanukkah traditions such as lighting the menorah with family and friends, playing with dreidels and chocolates coins, and eating delicious latkes.

Review:

Jewish families around the world each have their own special customs to celebrate Hanukkah. The family featured here celebrates each of the eight days of the holiday with an important ritual. On the first night they light the first candle of their silver menorah, sing songs, and take turns reading about Judah Maccabee and his friends, who refused to give up their faith two thousand years ago. On the second night they go to Grandma and Grandpa's and light two candles, then make delicious latkes (potato pancakes). On the third night they light three candles and gather together clothing and toys they don't need anymore to give away to people who aren't as lucky as they are. As each of the eight days goes by, the family builds their own set of traditions that teach them about Hanukkah and togetherness.

Written from a child's perspective, and illustrated with friendly pictures by DyAnne DiSalvo-Ryan, Michael J. Rosen's story of one family's festivities shows young readers that acceptance and love are tremendously important elements of Hanukkah. While celebrating the seventh night with close Christian friends, the child narrator says "Did I tell you that our Hanukkah is also about people of different religions living alongside one another?" Warm, cozy, and instructive in the gentlest way, this book is a treasure to be shared. (Ages 6 to 10) --Emilie Coulter
