Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hanukkah is a few weeks away, and Sam can't wait to celebrate with his family, especially his grandma. At Sunday school, everyone in his class is busy making clay menorahs to give as Hanukkah gifts! Sam likes how his menorah is turning out, but he's worried--his family already has seven menorahs! Will they want another one? His teacher reassures him that his parents will love it, but Sam is determined to solve this problem on his own and find the perfect home for his menorah.

Sam's dilemma in this sweet and simple Hanukkah story is one that rings true for kids and their families.

Review:

"Sam knows that his family already has plenty of menorahs, so when his Hebrew school teacher announces a menorah project for Hanukkah, Sam fears his will be useless. He works diligently on it and keeps it hidden, but still worries it won't serve a purpose. It is only when his grandmother and her friends share their own predicament that Sam comes to realize his menorah will find a beautiful home. Brightly colored and empathic pictures by Hughes bring this charming Hanukkah story to life. Ages 4 — 7. Author's agent: Steven Chudney, the Chudney Agency. Illustrator's agent: the Bright Agency."

Synopsis:

At Sunday school Sam and his classmates are making menorahs for Hanukkah gifts, but Sam worries that his family already has enough menorahs.
