Publisher Comments:

I am a mix of two traditions.

From Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama.

How lucky am I?

Holiday time at Sadie's house means golden gelt sparkling under the Christmas tree, candy canes hanging on eight menorah branches, voices uniting to sing carols about Macabees and the manger, and latkes on the mantel awaiting Santa's arrival.

Selina Alko's joyous celebration of blended families will make the perfect holiday gift for the many Americans who celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.

Review:

"'I am a mix of two traditions,' begins Sadie's story of her family's way of blending religious traditions. Like the image of the dining table surrounded by a hodge-podge of mismatched chairs, each picture underscores the theme of blending elements to create an exciting whole ('How lucky am I?'). Alko's (B Is for Brooklyn) prose tends to be blandly declarative ('Mountains of gifts are placed under the tree for eight nights of Hanukkah, plus Christmas Day'), but her illustrations grab attention, an exuberant combination of colors, textures, and images created by gouache, collage, and colored pencil. Ages 5 — 8. Agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
