Editorial Reviews

In this adorable board book story, Biscuit the dog watches as his friends make a beautiful menorah to celebrate Hanukkah. A fine way to introduce the holiday to children.
Publishers Weekly
The golden pup helps his owner to make a menorah as a gift in Biscuit's Hanukkah by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, illus. by Pat Schories. The dialogue emphasizes the number of candles needed and the tradition of telling stories. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
As his owner sets about to create a menorah to celebrate Hanukkah, Biscuit gets into his usual mischief: exploring wet paint (he makes a cute blue nosed dog), and helping with the wrapping paper and ribbon (by getting himself "wrapped" up). This gentle little book shows a little girl and her puppy engaged in an art project with a purpose. They share their finished menorah with a couple of other children. The text is intended for early readers, but it is perfect to share with little listeners who will also observe the yarmulke on a little boy's head as a natural part of the illustrations. This is a good introduction to some of the aspects of Hanukkah and includes words such as "shamash," which is explained to Biscuit as meaning the "leader candle." 2005, Harper Collins, Ages 2 to 6.
