by Lola M. Schaefer
One way to understand a different culture is to learn about its holidays. A straightforward text and plenty of full-color pictures explain the history of Hanukkah and how Jewish people celebrate it in the United States. One of the most recognizable symbols is the menorah and candle lighting that takes place over the eight nights of Hanukkah. Other activities such as the driedl game and eating special foods are also featured. The closing pages contain a short glossary, a few books and Internet sites and a word list/index. Part of the "Holidays and Celebratrions" series.

The Energizing Hanukkah Story for Children

By Chaim Mazo
This is a revised, expanded edition of Uh! Oh! Hanukkah, a combination of story, games, rebuses, riddles and activities about that favorite winter holiday. Bright and breezy, it guarantees hours of fun for kids and their parents, who will surely be mystified by such commands as "Check the Oil, Please!" and "Tanks, But No Tanks!" and "Right, Wrong, Left, Right." Lots of tongue-in-cheek, puns and good clean fun for the whole eight days. I only wish the publication, a bargain at $7.95, could have cleaned up cut-and-paste lines and done a better job on the quality of the color; but don't let that stop you from giving it a whirl.

Chanukah on the Prairie

By Burt E. Schuman
Chanukah on the Prairie is the perfect introduction to a little-known slice of American Jewish history.

As many Eastern European Jews immigrated to America, a small few traveled beyond New York City to the West. There, in the rolling plains, much like the homes they had left behind, Jews from all over Eastern Europe came together to make a new home.

Based upon true events, this poignant story by Burt E. Schuman with beautiful illustrations by Rosalind Charney Kaye, follows the journey of the Zalcmans as they travel from their small village in Poland to Ellis Island and ultimately to Grand Forks. This story is a wonderful addition to any child's library. Join in the joy as the new immigrants celebrate their first Chanukah in a new land.
