Editorial Reviews

The Baton Rouge Advocate
Bubbie and Zadie COme to My House - " A classic Hanukkah tale...(Meilichson's) lovely watercolors enliven the story and help convey the mystical feel of the tale."
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``It's . . . l'chayim!'' and special reasons for rejoicing, the narrator of Bloom's warm story tells us. Julian's brightly colored pictures reflect the happiness in the Jewish home when Bubbie and Zadie arrive on the first night of Hanukkah. The magic grandparents have flown (under their own power) from their tailor shop in Nome, Alaska, to help celebrate the miracle of ancient days. Sharing potato latkes, singing along while the boy and his sister spin the dreidel, Bubbie and Zadie recall with the family the victory of the Maccabees and the small bit of oil that lighted the lamps for eight days. Before soaring off to visit other children around the world, the grandparents promise to return for the holiday each year. Readers who want to write Bubbie and Zadie (who answer all their mail) will find the address in the book. A percentage of the royalties will go to children's hospitals in Israel, Europe and North America. (5up)
