Reviews

"An excellent introduction to the holiday."--Kirkus Reviews

"The simple, accessible text is enhanced by acrylic spreads in rich, warm colors that bring both solemnity and excitement to the story. With so much holiday hoopla focusing on less historical, more celebratory aspects of Hanukkah, it is good to have a book that tells it like it was."--School Library Journal

"The events commemorated in the holiday of Hanukkah are retold simply for young ears by prolific children's author Adler . . . Weber's full-spread color illustrations, with an emphasis on traditional holiday blue, convey the epic scope of the story . . . [a] family-oriented book designed to impart traditions."--Publishers Weekly
