On the First Night of Chanukah

by Cecily Kaiser Illustrated by Brian Schatell
In this Chanukah twist on a favorite song, young readers can count down the eight nights of Chanukah with special gifts on every page! On the first night of Chanukah, my mother gave to me A menorah burning bright for all to see!
Sung to the tune and rhythm of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this book introduces young readers to the traditions of Chanukah. Gifts of latkes, dreidels, donuts, and much more celebrate this very special holiday. Back matter and a glossary explain the history and traditions of Chanukah.
