Note: 
In sparkling watercolor and collage illustrations, a diverse rainbow of children joyously celebrate Hanukkah. The rhyming text is complemented by the appealing illustrations, while the board book format and small size are just right for very young toddlers. Full-color illustrations on one side of each double-page spread portray the holiday progressing as the children eat latkes, spin a dreidel, give and receive presents, and enjoy a treat of Hanukkah gelt. On the opposite side of each page, one more candle in the colorful menorah is lit for each of the eight nights, until they have all been lit at the end. After the children play with shadows on the wall and enjoy dancing and singing, a healthy feast of fruits and vegetables is shown, perfect for our health-conscious times. There are no adults in the story, so readers see the story from a child’s perspective.
