Children's Literature - Judy KatshA young boy searches through the sturdy pages of this lift-the-flap book for his lost dreidel. While he does not find his lost toy, he does see his family members all polishing, and otherwise readying different traditional Hanukkah treasures of their own. For young readers unfamiliar with the holiday, this interactive introduction will be informative, as well as entertaining to read. For young readers who have grown up with Hanukkah customs, the fun here will be in guessing what's under each flap. Readers who like their endings happy will be pleased to know that while our young hero really doesn't find his lost dreidel; he does get a new one from his grandma! (Too bad directions for playing the game aren't included).
