Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Noteworthy graphics and clever use of design elements jazz up a small (9" 7") paper-over-board book that counts up from one through the eight nights of the holiday. Newcomer Sper introduces familiar and less obvious aspects of Hanukkah (e.g., three stands for the elephants, which, as an endnote explains, were used by the attacking Syrian-Greeks). Die-cuts show the correct number of "candles" on each spread, made all the more pleasing by strong, clear color combinations and color-coded fonts. Each page includes Hebrew and Yiddish words, transliterations and pronunciations. Ages 3-6. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
For $6.95 you'd expect a paperback; instead Scholastic has produced a gorgeous hardcover with die-cut candles on each stunning page of this cumulative counting book. Black backgrounds alternate with bright colors on facing pages so the candle cutouts almost jump out, demanding to be counted. And the clever idea of presenting three languages (faultlessly transliterated) will give children and parents a tri-lingual experience of Hanukkah. Along the way you get basic elements of the holiday, and a fuller treatment of the history and observances covers the last two pages. This is sure to be a favorite. 2001, Scholastic, $6.95. Ages 2 to 8. Reviewer: Judy Chernak
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-In this visually appealing book, children are invited to count menorah candles and other holiday objects in English, Hebrew, and Yiddish. The three languages are printed in different colors, and the Hebrew and Yiddish are shown both phonetically and in the Hebrew alphabet. A pronunciation guide and a brief explanation of the Hanukkah story are included. The strength of the book is its use of simple, bold illustrations and colored fonts against solid backgrounds. The pages are die cut to illustrate the candles, which clutters up the otherwise simple design. A good choice for large collections.-E. M. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
