The Eight Nights of Hanukkah: 01/12/08
Hanukkah ended a month ago but the books I ordered through Sean's school came after the holiday. The timing of their arrival plus the chaos of the Christmas and New Year's holidays is why this review is so late.
The Eight Nights of Hanukkah is one of two children's books I got for Sean this year to help explain the holiday to him. Of the two, it is my favorite.
Besides the story of a family celebrating Hanukkah, the book contains inserts of useful information that includes the prayer to say while lighting the candles, an arts-and-crafts instructions for making a menorah, an explanation of the Hebrew calendar, some songs to sing and so forth. It's a nice basic primer for the holiday.
