Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A preschool classroom gets ready for an intergenerational celebration in the paper-over-board It's Hanukkah Time! by Latifa Berry Kropf, with photos by Tod Cohen. The kids mail invitations, create gifts and decorations, and even help stir the sufganiyot (donut) batter in preparation for the holiday. Cohen photographs the events leading up to the arrival of their grandparents and the ensuing games and songs. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A basic primer for the Hanukkah holiday, this bright, cheerful hardcover book features lots of photographs and very few words, making it ideal for the very young. Through the charming photos we can follow the preparations for this well-loved Festival of Lights. A class of pre-school children delights in setting up the menorah, preparing invitations for their grandparents, wrapping gifts, decorating the classroom, making sufganiot (fried donuts), and then welcoming their guests to the party. Candles are lit with a blessing, included with music at the back of the book along with the recipe for sufganiot. After a fun-filled party, complete with spinning the dreidel (top), dancing the horah (Israeli dance) and reading stories about Hanukkah, the adorable happy faces end their party by singing Hanukah songs. So all bases are covered in this joyous book, making it a good multi-cultural vehicle for the general classroom as well as the Jewish one. 2004, Kar-Ben, Ages 2 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-A class of preschoolers prepares for a Hanukkah party by sending invitations to their grandparents, making decorations and gifts, and mixing the batter for sufganiyot (donuts). When their guests arrive, everyone dances, sings, lights Hanukkah candles, and eats the treats. The text is short and simple, and the kids and grandparents are clearly having fun (even if the photos look staged). A recipe for the donuts is included, as well as the English and Hebrew texts for the Hanukkah candle blessings.-E. M. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
