This book is my favorite because: "It is a rich source of crafts, games, stories. A book to be used again and again. It has one of my stories."

Publisher Marketing: "What fun! A Hanukkah book chock full of history, stories, activities, music, riddles, games, mazes, cartoons, puzzles, recipes, crafts, songs, and so much more. In this activity-packed, fact-filled new title in the enormously successful JPS Kids' Catalog Series, Adler provides just the right balance of education and entertainment. This is a book that children and their families will enjoy again and again, year after year.
The opening section of the book explains the history and customs of Hanukkah, along with details on the traditional way to light the candles and celebrate the holiday. This is followed by a selection of wonderful stories written by such classic writers as I.L. Peretz and Sadie Rose Weilerstein, and modern tales by Hazel Krantz, Johanna Hurwitz, Malka Penn, and other contemporary storytellers. Part Three is pure Hanukkah fun.
A glossary, index, and annotated list of recommended books about Hanukkah are also included. Teachers and librarians will want this new Kids' Catalog of Hanukkah for their bookshelves, and parents and grandparents will be pleased to have a new Hanukkah gift for their children and grandchildren. It contains enough enjoyment to last the eight days of Hanukkah and beyond." CHECK OUT OTHER TITLES BY DAVID A. ADLER.
