Product Description & Reviews

Hanukkah is one of the most beloved holidays in the Jewish year, an eight-day festival of lights, games, and celebration. It honors a tiny band of heroes, armed with little more than their faith in God, who defeated a mighty empire and proved that miracles truly do happen for those with the courage to believe in them. Eric A. Kimmel presents a wonderful Hanukkah compilation, filled with the history and flavor of this unique holiday. From familiar legends to contemporary stories, from delicious recipes to children's games, this is a treasury that will entertain and engage the whole family. 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
