Editorial Reviews

Book list
With beguilingly simple prose, Sussman transports readers around the globe weaving unifying themes of Hanukkah - freedom, charity, security, heroism - into the fabric of her brief stories. Joining Sussman’s THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A CHANUKAH BUSH, this is a vibrant choice for holiday collections.
Association of Jewish Libraries
A boy and girl lighting a menorah illustrates the cover of this volume telling stories in eight different countries in connections with Hanukkah. One is introduced to various customs making this book an enjoyable learning experience.
Reading Teacher
The nights of celebration are described through the eyes of children in Israel, Mexico, Argentina, the United States, France, India, Morocco, and Russia -- always with the loving guidance of the elders. It's an informative, respectful book.
Tri-State YA Book Review Committee Drexel University
A collection of eight short stories about how modern Jewish families celebrate the holidays in different countries of the world. This book would make an excellent addition to a basic holiday collection for young readers.
Children's Book Review Service Brooklyn, NY
The episodes are believable and add human interest amidst contemporary settings to those looking for something besides straight history.

There is a helpful glossary of Yiddish and Hebrew words and phrases and a bibliography of children and adult sources.
