Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This sturdy, interactive book comes with eight shiny gold pieces of cardboard gelt, which can be removed from a tray in the cover via a ribbon pulley. As the minimal, accessible text describes the history of the holiday (the victory of the Maccabees, the miracle of the oil), readers can place the gelt into the Maccabees' die-cut shields, onto plated latkes and into a “tzedekah” or “charity” box (the gilt doesn't snap perfectly into theallotted spaces, but it's still a pleasing effect). On the last spread, readers can “light” the “chanukkiyah” by sliding the gelt into individual slots for each of the eight candles for a satisfying finale. Ages 3–5. (Oct.)\
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
This sturdy board book with four pages to turn introduces the holiday of Chanukah to the very young. Through holes in the cover are eight shining gold foil-stamped circles. On the first double page stand five Maccabee fighters. A pull-tab reveals that the gold circles on the cover can be removed and placed inside their shields. The second double page discusses the miracle of the oil that burned for eight nights while depicting the "delicious snacks cooked in oil," jelly doughnuts and five latkes with centers to be filled with the gold circles. A note on the next spread mentions playing with the dreidel along with the importance of giving. There are six circles in a "charity" box to fill with gold "gelt." Finally, on the last spread, there is a "chanukkiyah" with eight candles to be "lit" with the gold circles for the eight nights of the holiday. The characters illustrated are very simply created. Instructions are clear; following them can add activity to the holiday celebration. The information is minimal, however, and would need supplementing. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

    Great interactive book!

    It can be hard to find a Chanukah book that draws childre's attention when there are 3 huge tables of Christmas books right next to them. My son loved the interactive nature of this book and it was a simple introduction to the story and meaning behind Chanukah.
