Overview

This stunning novelty book, now in paperback features bold graphic artwork and die-cuts in the shape of candles, and simply explains the Hanukkah story and teaches children to count from one to eight.

Graphic, vibrant artwork and die-cuts in the shape of candles combine to create this informative and elegant book about one of the most joyous Jewish holidays. The symbols of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, are visually presented to stunning effect as young children learn to count in three different languages from one to eight. Die-cuts of colorful candles--one for each night of Hanukkah--against rich black backgrounds add up one by one with each turn of the page. The importance of the menorah, shamash candle, dreidels, and more are explained in this simple retelling of the story of Hanukkah
