Celebrate the festival of lights with this board book edition of Leslie Kimmelman's popular picture book. Just right for preschoolers, this charming Hanukkah story beautifully introduces several holiday traditions, including lighting the menorah, reciting blessings, playing dreidel games, and more.

"Simple text and jovial watercolors convey the warmth and fun of a family's Hanukkah celebration. Each turn of the page brings a new night of the eight-night holiday and highlights different traditional customs [while on] each double-page spread a menorah [adds] a candle-counting exercise to this playful presentation of holiday customs and activities." —BL.
