Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Incorporating the popular music of "12 Days of Christmas" into a Chanukah book, this is perfect for children of any religious orientation. "On the first night of Chanukah..." begins the familiar tune in a book that sees the wondrous days of Chanukah through the eyes of young child. The child's family grows bigger and bigger as the holiday gets closer and closer. Each night, one new item or person is added to the celebration-and there is always a present for every child in the room! The accumulating text makes this book fun to read (and sing!) aloud while the bright and cheerful illustrations allow a young reader to count each object added. Educational and a joy for adults and children, "The Eight Nights of Chanukah" is a wonderful book for the whole family to share.

Review:

"This Chanukah-centric version of 'The 12 Days of Christmas' unspools through the observations of a shy toddler. Newman (Hachiko Waits) opts for the cozily familiar over the clever ('On the third night of Chanukah/ I clap my hands to see/ Three challahs/ Two Maccabees/ And a present waiting for me'), while Savadier's (Jewish Holidays All Year Round) exuberant ink line and playful sense of color convey a knack for the warmhearted comedy of domestic life (the 'two Maccabees' are a duo of tussling older kids in historic costume, and Grandma, still wearing her apron, enjoys a post-prandial snooze). A brief history of Chanukah and a glossary of terms conclude the book. Ages 4-7. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
