Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rosen (Elijah's Angel) stresses multiculturalism in this bland venture. For example, on the seventh night of Hanukkah, the child narrator notices that the house of his best friend, who celebrates Christmas, is lit with lamps, "seven altogether"). The focus is so secular that the ending ("I think about... being Jewish in such a wide world of so many other lights") feels hollow. Iwai's (Night Shift Daddy) cheery acrylics contain an unannounced game: the numbers of cats per spread correspond to the successive nights. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal

reS-On each of the eight nights of Chanukah, a young boy finds a matching number of lights in the world around him to remind him of the burning candles on his family's menorah. The warm, appealing acrylic illustrations and the counting element make this a good choice to share with preschoolers.-E. M.

More About the Author

Greetings and thanks for welcoming me into your home. Since I write books for both young readers and adults, I've cooked up two long-winded paragraphs.

Kids first: So, I'm the author of some four dozen books for children of all ages. New titles including SAILING THE UNKNOWN: Around the World with Captain Cook; MY DOG! A Kid's Guide to Keeping a Happy & Healthy Dog (the ideal go-to dog guide for families); a pop-up book with Robert Sabuda, CHANUKAH LIGHTS, winner of the Sydney Taylor Award; and THE HOUND DOG'S HAIKU and Other Poems for Dog Lovers.
Other favorites are The Cuckoo's Haiku and Other Poems for Birders; Our Farm: Four Seasons with Five Kids on One Family's Farm (which I both wrote and illustrated with some 400 photographs); A Drive in the Country; Don't Shoot!; A School for Pompey Walker, and Elijah's Angel. (And, yes, there's the Britiish Michael--no "J."--Rosen whose many books are often confused with mine.) For over 35 years, ever since working as a counselor, water-safety instructor, and art teacher at local community centers, I've been engaged with young children, their parents and teachers. As a visiting author, in-service speaker, and workshop leader, I frequently travel to schools and conferences around the nation, sharing stories, poems, creativity, and humor.

Several of my books here show my work as editor/anthologist or illustrator. It has been my privilege to have enlisted hundreds of other authors and artists to create 15 philanthropic books that aid in the fight to end childhood hunger through Share Our Strength's national efforts, or that offer care to less fortunate companion animals through The Company of Animals Fund, a granting program I administered for a dozen years.

Now, for adults. I can start by saying I'm a poet. I went to Columbia from 1979-1981, and received my MFA there. Poems are now collected in three volumes, which are all featured here at Amazon. Moving home to Ohio, I worked as an illustrator (while in NYC, I began selling spot illustrations to The New Yorker and Gourmet magazines); one of my first real clients was The Thurber House, the soon-to-be-restored home of Columbus's native son, James Thurber. For almost twenty years, I helped to restore the home, develop the programs there, and edit much of Thurber's uncollected work. (Those volumes are also featured here.) It was there, I began to edit short story anthologies, commission great writers to contribute to books about dogs, horses, and even VW Beetles. That's also where I started Mirth of a Nation, a three-volume humor biennial that constitutes almost 2,000 pages of the best contemporary humor.

Otherwise, my Website has a good deal about my life on the 100-acre farm I share in Central Ohio. Thanks again for reading along with me.

I chose this book for my classroom rather than other Chanukah books because it covers all nine days in a nice clear way. It is a gentle nice story that many children will enjoy and many kids will better understand how Chanukah is celebrated by Jewish people in the United States.

We own just about every Chanukah book there is, and this is one of my favorites. The illustrations are warm and lovely, the text is neither juvenile (please no more rhyming books!) nor dull (retelling of the Maccabee story, anyone?), and the concept - connecting the "festival of lights" to all the many lights that brighten the holiday season (cars' headlights, houselights, Christmas lights) - is clever, meaningful and inclusive. A winner.

The nice thing about this book is that it represents Chanukah as a festival of lights. But the book remains quite constrained in its imagination, and of course the family is white and full of the oldest gender stereotypes (mom in the kitchen, dad wearing the kippah and saying the prayers).

This book was recommended to me by a preschool director who wanted to talk about being Jewish and celebrating Channukah in a world filled with different religions and customs. My son goes to a preschool with children from many backgrounds and when he began talking about wanting a Christmas tree and having Santa visit, I decided I wanted him to understand that you can both feel special about celebrating your own holiday but also respect and appreciate other children's holidays- that it doesn't have to be one or the other. I think this is a great book for children who are trying to decide what or how they should feel about being different than their friends this time of year. The book talks about the beauty of light during the winter holidays and how the lights of Channukah are just one kind of special light during this time. Overall, really age appropriate book for 4, 5, and 6 year olds.

I purchased this gem of a book to explain Chanukah to kindergarten children. Colorful illustrations and a sweet story line keeps children entertained as well as teaches about Chanukah. I am very pleased with the book and look forward to exploring more titles from this author.
