Synopsis

Eight Candles to Light A Chanukah Story by Jonny Zucker

Young children will love this simple introduction to Chanukah, the Jewish festival of light. Follow a family as they light the menorah, open presents and eat latkes, to celebrate the great miracle that happened over 2,000 years ago. This charming pre-school series introduces young children to world religions, focusing on the way the festival is celebrated today. Also includes detailed historical and cultural information at the end for parents and teachers.

Reviews

This is just the sort of holiday story that librarians and teachers of young preschoolers look for!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
