A simple celebratory story of Hanukkah for the youngest Jewish and non-Jewish children who want to know more about the holiday. I especially loved the many different-looking people featured, showing an inclusive world.
Good Night Hanukkah highlights the menorah, family dinner, blessings, songs, potato latkes, beef brisket, jelly donuts, the shamash, lighting the candles, the story of the Maccabees, playing dreidel, reading the Torah, gift giving, and more. Let's spin the dreidel! Children are introduced to the story of Hanukkah and all of its exciting traditions in this festive and educational board book. From singing along to "Rock of Ages" to lighting the menorah, young readers will enjoy celebrating the Jewish Festival of Lights.
This book is part of the bestselling Good Night Our World series, which includes hundreds of titles exploring iconic locations and exciting themes.
Happy Hanukkah! Children will be soothed to sleep after a day full of celebration.
