However you may choose to spell it, the eight-night "festival of lights" known as Hanukkah is a wintertime Jewish holiday that honors a miracle. Celebrate with your little ones by spinning a dreidel, singing songs, eating potato latkes, and of course, reading great books together. As you light the menorah each night, and share gifts and gelt with your family, capture the joyous spirit of the holiday for your early reader through these fun books for Hannukah and more — including the Dreidel, Dreidel Dreidel
board book, How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah
and I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel.
