Editorial Reviews Review

Hooray for Hanukkah--the festival of lights! This beautiful, color-drenched compendium offers a lovely, lively tribute to the Jewish holiday, as well as the history and tradition behind the celebration. Eric A. Kimmel, author of the Caldecott Honor-winning Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, has collected a rich wealth of Hanukkah stories, songs, poetry, recipes, legends, and cultural lore--information that will intrigue readers of any religion. Do you know how the first menorah earned a place at the White House? How many variations of the dreidel game can you play? Ever heard the story about Hanukkah in Alaska--complete with a latke-loving moose? Emily Lisker, illustrator of the vivid Sol a Sol: Bilingual Poems, provides the stunning visual accompaniment to this exciting exploration of history and tradition, with pictures that are folk art in style and exhilarating in movement and palette. Audiences of all ages and faiths will return to this treasury year after year as a source of culture and delight. (Ages 4 to 8) --Brangien Davis

From School Library Journal

Grade 2 Up?This lovely compilation includes traditional and Biblical stories; original selections by Kimmel, Peninnah Schram, Howard Schwartz, Barbara Diamond Goldin, and Barbara Brown; poems and songs by Jane Yolen, J. Patrick Lewis, Erica Silverman, and Debbie Friedman; recipes and craft ideas; and a wealth of information about Hanukkah. However, the true wonder is found in the primitive jewel-toned acrylic paintings that dance through the book. Source notes are appended. A lively collection, enhanced by vibrant art, resulting in a surefire hit for the holidays.?AC

Format: Hardcover
This book contains stories, songs, poems, blessings, and recipes for Hannukah. My kids are 4 and 7 and they both enjoy it. I will read it with them every year. When my son's preschool asked for a Hannukah book for the class, I took this one, and she picked out what she thought was appropriate. It has become our standard reference/story book for Hannukah.
