Note: 
In 1912, on the Lower East Side of NYC, the All-of-a-Kind-Family prepares for Hanukkah. When Gertie, the youngest, is not allowed to help prepare latkes, she throws a tantrum. Banished to the girls' bedroom, she can still hear the sounds and smell the smells of a family getting ready to celebrate. But then Papa comes home and she is allowed out--and given the best job of all: lighting the first candle on the Hanukkiah. The 2019 Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner for Younger Readers.
