Jewish Values: Ziz and the Hanukkah Miracle, The

Publisher: 
Publication Year:

Number of Pages: 
32 p.
Note: 
The Ziz, a big bird with a little brain, is taught both sharing and cooperation in this third picture book of the series. Unwilling to share the light of the lamp that God has given him, he lurches to a spot near the Temple and so becomes the vehicle through which the oil to light the Hanukkiyah lasted for eight nights. Clumsy and garishly drawn, the Ziz is hard to love but adults forgive his faults because the stories about him deliver such unambiguous messages about good behavior. Marginally recommended.
