Description

Joan Holub is the author of many books for children, including the All Aboard Reading titles, Pen Pals and Pajama Party. I loved that this was a flap book which gave an extra boost to the story. I also liked that each page featured a menorah that was lit with the candles for the different days.

Lynne Cravath has illustrated several books for children, including One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims, by B. G. Hennessy. Age Range: 2 - 6 years. Series: Picture Puffins. Each menorah was created differently which at first I missed. I was humored by the cat one. Again, showing differences for each family that celebrates.

I thought I purchased this book "new," but it was clearly used when I received it. You could see where a price tag sticker had been removed and the sticky glue was left behind. Some of the flaps were also used and one slightly torn. In the end, it was ok because I was giving it to a two year old and would have it sticky and ripped in no time anyway.

Favorite Hanukkah book. My four year old is obsessed with this book. As soon as we start talking about Hanukkah she asks for her Joan Halub book. She got this as an infant and it is the one Hanukkah book that has remained her favorite. It does have text but it is very simple. As an infant the fun was in the lift the flap part but now her favorite part is narrating the pictures. She loves the expressive cat in the pictures.

My 1 & 2 year old boys love flip books so I thought this would be perfect for them. While they did enjoy turning the pages, there wasn't much to actually read to them. Not the best book we've ever read.

Very cute. My son and I read the book together for Chanukah. He enjoyed turning the flaps to see what happened next. Good preschooler story. Not too descriptive though, if you want more of a descriptive Chanukah story...this isn't the one. Very basic.

My daughter is 21 months old and loves this book. She enjoys the visuals and whenever I'm finished reading it, she says "again." She constantly selects this book and hands it to me to read, saying "Hanukkah." She also loves saying "Happy Hanukkah" at the end. The content is perfect for my daughter's age and I'm pleasantly surprised that she's enjoying it this much.

I enjoyed reading this book to my Sunday School students. The pre-schoolers loved the pictures and the content was enough to inform them of the true meaning of Hanakah.

I chose it because it doenst have much text and the pictures say it all for the little ones. they can make up their own stories...
As I have mentioned before, I think it is a great thing to have literature that speaks to all children. Children need to learn about differences and respect one another for them. That is why I was so excited to review this book about Hanukkah.

This book was sweet in nature and in general gives simple activities that Jewish children and their families may do for the eight days of Hanukkah. The author writes simple poetry for each page, which she does so well. The book is targeted at 2-6 year old's so, it is meant to be a picture book mostly.

The illustrations were bold and showed the wonderment children have as they celebrate and the fun things they get to do. I loved that this was a flap book which gave an extra boost to the story.

I also liked that each page featured a menorah that was lit with the candles for the different days. Each menorah was created differently which at first I missed. I was humored by the cat one. Again, showing differences for each family that celebrates.

The only thing I would have liked to have seen with this book is a short glossary in the back of the book. A family or child that might have read this book may not know what some things are and a simple explanation in the back would have cleared that up. In addition, it might have been nice to see the dreidel song or a similar song added to the end of the book and maybe what each day's candle meant. I think all of these things could have been added but still give the feel of a picture book for the younger set and allow a little more for the older child.

Overall, I liked this book and glad to have it in my collection. I give it 4 stars and a Happy Hanukkah!
