Note: 
This true story in photo-essay form follows David Ginsburg, a marine biologist, who spends five months in Antartica studying sea urchins and other under-water life. Wondering how to celebrate Hanukkah, he forms the sea urchins and sea stars living in the frigid sea into a menorah shape, catches their sparkling colors and shape with an underwater camera, and then shares the pictures on his computer with the other scientists. Full-color photos enhance the story and the amount of text is just right for young readers. Children will be fascinated by the diving suits and equipment David and his diving partner use, and by learning how he honors his Jewish heritage in such an unusual way.
