My Very Own Hanukkah Box

One Night, One Hanukkah Night
One Night, One Hanukkah Night

By Aidel Backman
The same menorah that shone in Bubby and Zaidy's house, so long ago, now glistens in a modern home. Children sing Hanukkah songs, make latkes, and act out historic scenes. For each night there is a new form of celebration as another candle is added and Hanukkah traditions pass from one generation to the next.

description from Publisher

Using simple, lilting verse, each night of Hanukkah is very briefly described by focusing on one aspect of the festivities. The color illustrations juxtapose a contemporary celebration with one set in the past.

A Great Miracle Happened There
A Great Miracle Happened There : A Chanukah Story

By Karla Kuskin
A boy and his mother explain the history and traditions of the two-thousand-year-old religious holiday to Henry, a Christian neighbor. The illustrations pulse with energy, reinforcing the action of Kuskin's well-paced story-within-a-story. A splendid way for children of all backgrounds to learn about the Festival of Lights

Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah! :
A Treasury of Stories, Songs, and Games to Share

By Wendy Wax
Bright as a sparkling winter night, snow-speckled pages invite readers to observe the Hanukkah candles being lit. Bolder, more dramatically hued paintings emphasize the honor or intensify the magic of such selections as David A. Adler's story, "Malke's Secret Recipe," Aileen Fisher's poem, "Light the Festive Candles," and Charlotte Herman's retelling of the traditional tale "The Two Miracles of Hanukkah." Whimsically drawn children frolic across other pages demonstrating how to dance the hora, play dreidel, and perform fingerplays. Highlighting this collection of activities and readings are Hanukkah memories of four well-known authors and performers, among them Shari Lewis' vivid recollections of her first Hanukkah away from home when, at 13, she took her ventriloquism show on the road for the Jewish Center Lecture Bureau. Appealing and versatile, the book is sure to be a valuable addition to holiday collections.

Description from Booklist

The collection of traditional songs, personal reminiscences, crafts, games, poems, and stories for the whole family is cheerfully illustrated in full color. Although stronger poetry could have been selected, the total package is attractively organized.

The Kvetchit:
A Hanukkah Tale
(Book and Cassette)

By Larry Butchins
I am a children's librarian and I love using the story around Chanukah time. I read it to a group of children, and then play the cassette tape so they can listen to all the kvetches (complaints). Then I invite the children and their parents up and ask them to recite their favorite kvetch into the tape recorder. At the end of the program, I play back all the complaints and everyone loves listening to themselves! The illustrations in this book are lovely. I have given many copies away as gifts and they receive rave reviews.
