Note: 
Grandparents, parents, kids, babies, and pets all celebrate Hanukkah is this handsomely illustrated story. Activities and symbols associated with the eight days of observance are divided into short blocks of verse that explore polishing the menorahs, lighting candles on each night, singing, dancing, welcoming guests, playing dreidel, enjoying latkes, opening presents, and giving tzedakah. The pencil and pastel artwork in deep shades of rust, green, and blue glows with warmth and family togetherness as it depicts the eight days of celebration inside a cozy home. Appended notes give brief historical information and describe some Hanukkah traditions. While this is far less original than the author’s delightful story, Moishe’s Miracle (Chronicle, 2005), it is still a pleasant addition to the Hanukkah book collection.
