On Hanukkahby Cathy Goldberg Fishman, Melanie W. Hall (Illustrator)
But most of all, it is time to
When Father brings out the menorahs from a box in the closet, a young girl knows it is time for Hanukkah, the eight-day Festival of Lights. Time for the whole family to get together to play dreidels and sing and dance. Time to remember the story of Judah Maccabee. Time to eat potato latkes. And, of course, time for presents.
But most of all, it is time to light the menorahs and remember the miracle of Hanukkah. The inspiring light from the miracle of the great menorah will touch readers of all faiths as a symbol of freedom, devotion, and the joyful spirit of the holiday. A glossary is included to help readers pronounce and understand some of the words in the book.
Cathy Goldberg Fishman takes young readers to a family Hanukkah celebration in her gentle text, illustrated with warmth and color by Melanie W. Hall.

The dreamy illustrations are what first drew me to this book, and I'm so glad I bought it. History and fun traditions are covered thoroughly and memorably, without losing a simple and lyrical tone. Gift-giving is mentioned but not central; being with family and connecting with the past come through as most important. Am about to buy other books by the same author!
