No kid’s holiday season is complete without a book to supplement the celebrations. Here’s a starter list of Hanukkah books to bring some extra reading and fun to this month’s Festival of Lights.
The Chanukkah Guest
by Eric A. Kimmel
This book is a personal favorite. It tells the silly story of a bear who is mistaken for a dinner guest and provides a great opportunity for dramatic reading and overacting.
The Borrowed Hanukkah Latkes
by Linda Glaser
Linda Glaser’s story tells a charming tale of sharing and bringing family and friends together.
This an excellent alphabet book celebrating many themes and symbols of Hanukkah. (Okay, X is a tough one, so be sure to give the author a break for using “Xylophone.”)
Rouss’s book is a great preschool story about a spider exploring the meaning of the holiday and (bonus!) features colors and numbers.
