Synopses & Reviews
Sweet illustrations and simple language bring the holidays to life for the youngest of children.

"In this cheerful board book, five children light a new candle on their menorah for each night of Hanukkah as they indulge in activities like exchanging gifts, making shadow puppets and reading a story. The text is simple and soothing — 'Hanukkah candles, shining bright./ One more candle every night' — while patterns as cozy as a patchwork quilt are featured throughout: the children are dressed in festive floral and plaid prints, and the candles they place on the menorah feature stripes, dots and curlicues. Also available: Christmas Tree. Ages 1 — 3. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
