Clever illustrations with…sunny colors, charming compositions, and multicultural casts of characters.
—School Library Journal
The text is simple and soothing—“Hanukkah candles, shining bright. / One more candle every night”—while patterns as cozy as a patchwork quilt are featured throughout: the children are dressed in festive floral and plaid prints, and the candles they place on the menorah feature stripes, dots and curlicues.
A good introduction to Hanukkah for the very young, this title also captures the universal warmth and joy of holiday celebrations and will find an audience with families of many backgrounds.
