on November 21, 2013

Books are the ultimate teaching tool. They start conversations, introduce new ideas, and can even help explain sacred traditions and holidays like Hanukkah. The best part is that our youngest children can learn at their level with these fantastic board books. The eight titles in this list are simple -- but that's good because they are great starting points for teaching young children about Hanukkah.
