Hanukkah: A Chubby Board Book (Dreidels Included)

By Alan Benjamin
The perfect way to introduce preschoolers to the Festival of Lights, this irresistible package comes with a chubby board book about Hanukkah and two wooden dreidels. The brightly illustrated book describes the many ways Hanukkah is celebrated.

Description from Publisher


This glowing picture book focuses on one family's celebration of Hanukkah. It's the eighth and final night of the holiday and Mama, Papa and Grandma Rose are lighting the menorah, while the children--Nora, Dan, Ruthie, Sam and baby Moe--begin their own preparations for the family celebration. Nora and Dan make latkes, Ruthie makes decorations, Sam makes clay dreidels and tries to teach baby Moe how to say "Hanukkah." The festive family meal is followed by songs, dances and gifts. Finally, as the evening ends and the candles burn low, Moe giggles "Hanuk-kah!" Schotter's somewhat bland text may confuse children with its odd blend of poetry and prose, but Hafner's watercolors of the cozy house filled with the warmth of love and family beautifully evoke this special celebration's pleasures. A one-page "Story of Hanukkah" and a glossary of Hanukkah words are included.

Description from Publishers Weekly


A Jewish family celebrates a happy Hanukkah in the 1950s. Nora leads her four siblings off to make gifts and latkes, spin the dreydel, and they all play until supper. After dinner, the children open presents and enjoy an extended family hug. Hafner's cartoon-lined figures are softened to good effect with watercolor and colored pencil, and the nighttime setting of the story is warm with candlelight and family delight. A final note gives a short explanation of the holiday.

Eight Lights for Eight Nights: Story and Activity Book

By Debbie Herman
Here is a wonderful, beautifully illustrated book to help inspire Jewish children in celebration of Hanukkah, the festival of lights, while also telling boys and girls of all faiths the fascinating story and traditions connected with this festive holiday. The book's first part tells the story, taken from The Book of Maccabees and other historical sources, of how Antiochus of Syria invaded the land of Judea and forbade the Jews to perform their religious rites, which included lighting the menorah. The story goes on to tell how the Syrians were ultimately defeated and driven away by the Maccabees, and how the Temple of Jerusalem was restored and its menorah lighted and miraculously kept burning. This book's remaining pages describe the joyful Hanukkah rituals meant to commemorate the miracle of the menorah. Children read about the special foods for Hanukkah, learn to light Hanukkah candles, make lots of fun, innovative crafts, play dreidel with chocolate Gelt, and generally celebrate this joyous holiday. Includes sidebars with cool facts!

The Very Best Hanukkah Gift
The Very Best Hanukkah Gift

By Joanne Rocklin
Daniel may be the middle child in the Bloom family, but he feels like the baby; his younger sister isn't afraid of the new dog, Rusty, next door, but Daniel is. To make matters worse, the dog's owner has invited the Blooms for Christmas cookies and hot chocolate. Daniel occupies himself before the dreaded visit by making Hanukkah presents for his family. The Blooms retell the ancient holiday story, light the candles, and cook traditional foods. On the night of the visit, Daniel accidentally drops the lucky dreidel he received as a gift. The dog scoops it up and places it at Daniel's feet, an overture of friendship that Daniel tentatively accepts. On the last night of the celebration, an ice storm knocks out the power and the Blooms' invited guests can't come, so they ask the other building residents, including Rusty, to share their Hanukkah meal. With refreshing, believable characters, this engaging story of a boy's fears, a supportive family, and a celebration that reflects traditional values is a great Hanukkah gift in itself.

Four Tiny Tot Hanukah Books

(Board Book Set)
Just right for little hands, these colorful board books hit the spot for gift giving before or during Hanukah. Although each book has but six sides of rhymed information, Scharfstein manages to pack a lot in, as exemplified by I Am a Latke, which offers a quick, happy recipe ("Peel that potato!/ Snip, snip, snip!/ Chop that potato!/ Rip, rip, rip./ Add eggs,/ salt and onions too./ Mush it and squish it./Goo, goo, goo!"). Other titles are I Am a Draydel, I Am Hanukah Gelt and I Am a Hanukiah (a menorah). Occasionally, outside background is helpful, such as knowing that "tzedakah" is charity giving, or why the Hanukiah is lit from right to left. Older children and parents may have to step in with the details.
