About the Author

Harriet Ziefert has vivid childhood memories of lighting the Hanukkah candles with her maternal grandfather, who always took her hand in his as he held the Shammash.

Karla Gudeon's paintings and prints are joyful representations of life, love, family, and Jewish ritual and culture. Her artwork is displayed in galleries and distinguished collections throughout the country and abroad, and she created illustrated characters and backgrounds for an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in New York City. Karla lives in New York with Kevin, Sam and Max, and Lila Mae. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Combining festive illustrations and a playful format, this title uses haiku to celebrate the eight nights of Hanukkah. While the selections address only the most basic ideas (Four candles tonight./Grandma fries the latkes brown./We want applesauce), each turn of the stepped pages brings fresh excitement as another lit candle and verse are revealed. Illustrations have a lovely folkloric quality in which Chagall-like figures, surrounded by richly colored flowers and stars, float across a fibrous tan background. Of particular note are the gorgeous patterned edges on the versos that mirror the tones of the newly exposed candle. Endnotes include an explanation of the candle blessings. A lovely addition.–Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library

A book for toddlers and preschoolers does not need to be 20 pages long. We received this book as a gift and love it. The poems are great. It is easy for my toddler and preschooler to both get into and the illustrations are gorgeous. This is a very beautiful book and I am glad that it is now part of our family library.

This book cleverly reveals a new Hanukkah haiku and a lit candle as each additional page (of a different length) is turned. The child's view of previously added candles is preserved until you see a completed menorah on the right side of the book and a cascade of gorgeous illustrations from 8 pages on the other. The very last two pages thoroughly describe the blessings of the Hanukkah candles, with some blessings in English and Hebrew. I love this book so much that I'll purchase more copies for gifts.
