There are many special things that happen during the Festival of Lights, otherwise known as Hanukkah. Do you know what sufganiyout or latkes are? They are very special yummy things that are served during Hanukkah. A sufganiyot is that doughnuts that you just cannot resist. "Sufganiyout! This One's for me. / How many doughnuts do you see?" Hanukkah is a time to be generous and you have to think about who you will help with the coins you put in your tzedakah box. There are all kinds of fun things in this ABC book to check out. Do you know what a shamash candle is? If not you will see one in this book!
This is a marvelous rhyming ABC book that helps young children explore the events of Hanukkah. Each letter is found within the full rhyme, with the letter capitalized. For example, when we look at the letter V, it is within the poem. "All Voices sing a Hanukkah song. / What family member `howls' along?" Of course that family member is the dog. The artwork is bright, bold, colorful, and expresses the childrens' joy as they anticipate Hanukkah events. The poems have that pep that's needed to keep it's young audience captivated. This is a perfect book to use at home or in Hebrew school to help young children learn about Hanukkah. In the back of the book is a brief description of the Hanukkah celebration.

This children's book is not like most ABC children's books I have read to children in which they describe a letter from the English alphabet by using the first letter of a word of different food products and other nouns. Instead, this book often highlights the first or other letter of a word in different places of a sentence or paragraph. For instance, when talking about the menorah it focused on the "f" in the "Count the flames and you will see" part of the paragraph, and when explaining that sufganiyot is eaten during Hanukkah the "o" in the sentence "This one's for me" is highlighted (the "o" in "one" is used in that sentence).
What a great way for children to learn their ABC's in a different kind of way than some children are used to learning them!
