Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This inviting board book is decorated like a Hanukkah present on the outside, with a sparkling silver ribbon and blue background with Hanukkah motifs. Inside, readers can learn about the simple joys of the holiday: they are invited to count how many pieces of chocolate gelt appear and later guess what's inside a pile of fried doughnuts. On the final spread, family members (they resemble paper dolls) display their favorite parts of the holiday. Lively and charming. Also available: A Christmas Present for: Me! Up to age 3. (Sept.)\
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is a board book inside the box that looks like a present. The box is covered with the Chanukah symbols printed on blue paper and is tied with a sparkly silver ribbon and bow. Open it up and children learn that Chanukah offers a lot to enjoy. For example there are delicious latkes which can be served with sour cream and/or applesauce. A spinning dreidel offer a game to play and a little bag is full of chocolate gelt. Then there are presents for lots of family members and friends and still more food including fried doughnuts. Kids are asked to guess what's inside and the illustration will give some help. Then there is a menorah and some of the candles are lit—kids are asked to count how many are brightly shining. The closing spread asks which part of the holiday a child likes best. Sharp eyes will spot the little mouse on each spread. As with the board book Hanukkah Lights there is no real information about the meaning of the holiday or the related symbols. Parents and others will need to provide the information behind all of the glitter and other facets of the holiday for it to make any sense. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
