Simple text and photographs describe the history of Hanukkah and how it is celebrated.
Children's LiteratureA small, short book for beginning readers, part of the "Holidays and Celebrations" series that "supports national social studies standards," this factual introduction to Hanukkah highlights the main features of the holiday. Photographs showing real-time families with mainstream traditions as they light candles, play dreidl, eat latkes and exchange gifts are leavened with a couple of old drawings for the history of the holiday pages. At the end there's a "Read More" section and one for Internet Sites, along with an Index/Word List. Pre-schools, early grades and day care centers might find this book a useful library addition. 2001, Pebble/Capstone, $14.60. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Judy Chernak
