Pearl's Eight Days Of Chanukah: With A Story and Activity for Each Nightby Jane Breskin Zalben
Chanukah's here, and Pearl is looking forward to celebrating it with her family. But there's one problem-Pearl's just found out that her cousins, Harry and Sophie, will be joining them for all eight nights of Chanukah, and she fears the worst. After all, it was Sophie who once put a latke on Pearl's chair for her to sit on, and everyone knows that Harry is like a "vilde chaya"-a wild animal. Fortunately, Pearl doesn't have time to worry about her cousins, because each night they do something special: They make menorahs, prepare latkes and jelly donuts, sing holiday songs for a friend in a nursing home, and make dreidels and puppets. Once the flurry of activity ends, Pearl sits down to write about the week-and realizes that the true joy of Chanukah comes from being with loved ones.
Jane Breskin Zalben's intricately detailed, jewel-like illustrations are a delight to the eye, and evoke the warmth and spirit of Chanukah. Easy-to-follow instructions are included for each activity, making this ideal for families who wish to create their own Chanukah traditions.
