Hanukkah:
The Festival of Lights

(A Window Storybook)

By Bertha Moss
Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, celebrates the victory of the Jews in their battle for religious freedom in ancient Israel. The window story book is a Chagall-like depiction of the former Warburg mansion, home of The Jewish Museum, with a fiddler on the roof. Open the eight numbered windows in sequence on the mansion to reveal the wondrous story of the Maccabee heroes. The Jewish Museum, founded in 1904, is the largest museum devoted to the study of Jewish culture in the Western Hemisphere, and its collection is one of the three finest in the world. Since 1947 The Jewish Museum has been housed in the landmark Warburg mansion on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The window story was co-produced by The Jewish Museum and More Than A Card, Inc. under the auspices of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. It measures 11 x 15 and has an easel back. It comes in a resealable poly bag.

All the Lights in the Night

By Arthur A. Levine
Based on the experiences of his grandfather and great-uncle's escape from Russia in 1914, Levine's story of two courageous boys should appeal to children. It is almost Hanukkah when brothers Moses and Benjamin flee the pogroms in their small village for Palestine, where their older brother lives. They travel by cart, train, and finally ship, through a number of trials and dangers. Along the way their spirits are sustained by telling the story of Hanukkah to each other, and by their grandmother's lamp. Given to them by their mother with only enough oil to last for a single night, it recreates the Hanukkah miracle by providing enough light for the entire journey. When the captain of the ship on which they are to sail claims they have only enough money for one ticket, they pay for the second ticket with the lamp. The boys mourn its loss, but then realize that they have All the Lights in the Night. Ransome's oil paintings capture the drama of the journey, especially the boys' encounters with the train conductor and the sea captain. They also show the warm relationship between the brothers. Good to read aloud, the story should prove popular for intergenerational sharing, especially in families in which grandparents or great-grandparents emigrated at a young age.

The Miracle of the Potato Latkes:
A Hanukkah Story

By Malka Penn
Reinforcing the idea of Hanukkah as a celebration of miracles, Penn gives us a particularly fanciful version of the holiday legend in which a small amount of oil for the menorah lasted for eight days. In Penn's story, it's potatoes, not oil, that are in short supply. Every year at Hanukkah time, Tante Golda removes eight potatoes from her barrel to make the "most delicious latkes in all of Russia," which she shares with all her friends. When a drought leaves her with only one potato at holiday time, she's unable to have her traditional feast. Instead, she shares her only potato with a beggar, a good deed that causes Tante Golda's luck to change.

The book's layout--the text is set in ruled columns, and there are odd chunks of unused white space--is distracting. However, the plot is well devised and recounted with verve, and Carmi's illustrations, with their subdued colors and broad, visible brush strokes, effectively evoke a hardscrabble, Eastern European atmosphere, ripe for wondrous things to occur. Tante Golda's latke recipe rounds things out.

The Menorah Story
The Menorah Story

By Mark Podwal
Podwal tells of the creation of the first menorah and how it became the eight-branched lamp with the "servant light" used to celebrate Hanukkah today. Freely drawn color illustrations light up this gracefully told story, which provides readers with a new perspective on the holiday and its symbols. An author's note provides additional information.

description by Horn Book

The story of the menorah is as rich and inspiring as its long-standing tradition of symbolism. And Mark Podwal's distinguished and graceful book brings the story of the menorah, and of King Antiochus, Judah Maccabee, and Hanukkah to a new generation of readers. Featuring luminous paintings, as well as a note from the author and a selected bibliography, this distinctive book is ideal for Hanukkah sharing and year-round reading.

The Story of Hanukkah:
A Lift-the-Flap Rebus Book

By Lisa Rojany
During Hanukkah, families retell the story about the courageous Maccabees and the little jar of oil that miraculously burned in the temple for eight days. Now that tale finds fresh expression in this ingenious lift-the-flap rebus/pop-up book.

Description from Publisher

This book was intended for young children, but we have learned to have fun with it in many ways as a whole family. When my child was young we read it as you would any rebus book, so that the child "reads" the pictures and you read the text. Now we like to take this book out at parties for the children, but have the adults suggest completely nonsensical substitutions for each picture and have the children correct us with the proper answers.
