A Hanukkah Treasury

by Eric A. Kimmel
 

Hanukkah is one of the most beloved holidays in the Jewish year, an eight-day festival of lights, games, and celebration. It honors a tiny band of heroes, armed with little more than their faith in God, who defeated a mighty empire and proved that miracles truly do happen for those with the courage to believe in them.

Overview

Hanukkah is one of the most beloved holidays in the Jewish year, an eight-day festival of lights, games, and celebration.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2 Up--This lovely compilation includes traditional and Biblical stories; original selections by Kimmel, Peninnah Schram, Howard Schwartz, Barbara Diamond Goldin, and Barbara Brown; poems and songs by Jane Yolen, J. Patrick Lewis, Erica Silverman, and Debbie Friedman; recipes and craft ideas; and a wealth of information about Hanukkah. However, the true wonder is found in the primitive jewel-toned acrylic paintings that dance through the book. Source notes are appended. A lively collection, enhanced by vibrant art, resulting in a surefire hit for the holidays.--AC
