Format: Paperback
In Deborah Da Costa's delightful children's picture book, "Hanukkah Moon" (Kar-Ben Publishing, $17.95 hardcover, $7.95 paperback), little Isobel gets to visit with her Aunt Luisa who has recently moved to the United States from Mexico. Once there, Isobel learns that Jews from Latin America also celebrate "Januca" but with a few differences. Jewish and Latin American traditions are blended so that, for example, Isobel gets to hit a large piñata shaped like a dreidel. Isobel also learns of the magic of the Hanukkah moon which is the "luna nueva" or new moon that always appears during Hanukkah. [The full review first appeared in the El Paso Times.]

I gave Hanukkah Moon to several of my grandchildren as Hanukkah gifts. They love the story and the illustrations. Even my 3 year old grandson asks me to read it over and over. I do believe the chocolate gold coins and the pinata sold him on the story. My older granddaughter, a very talented little artist, loved the illustrations. I highly recommend the book.

This is my new favorite Chanukah book. My two year old daughter is still a bit too young to appreciate it but I know this book will be a favorite in years to come. It's a wonderful Chanukah story with a great focus. As well as having a great story, one could use the book as a guide to enrich ones own Chanukah celebrating. HANUKKAH MOON is a beautiful story about a girl's Chanukah Rosh Chodesh (the "Hanukkah Moon") celebrated with her artist/art teacher aunt. As well as being Jewish the girl and family are Hispanic American so it a great cultural diversity book as well. The aunt's artwork depicted in the story and illustrations themselves are a special delight.

Hanukkah Moon is a delightful colorful story to read to a small child or
for an older child to read for himself.

We learn about how Hanukkkah is celebrated in another culture and we see
a heartwaraming variation thru a child's view. Very well written and
illustrated.

Hanukkah Moon is a quite well-written book with beautiful illustrations. It also shows some cultural diversity. But I was hoping for *Jewish* cultural diversity too when I ordered this book. Instead, where Hanukkah Moon could quite naturally have given the reader some insight into Sephardi Judaism, it comes through as a Yiddish-Ashkenazi story with dreidelech, latkes, yarmulkes on a bit of generic Spanish backdrop. What a great chance lost....
