Blogmas Day 22: Hanukkah Books for Children

Today marks the first night of Hanukkah! This special holiday is known as the festival of lights, in which families of Jewish faith celebrate this occasion for eight nights. A menorah is used to symbolize Hanukkah, and families light a candle for each night of this special holiday.

Here are some special stories centered around Hanukkah to read for children. I discovered all of these selections through Goodreads:

Latke, the Lucky Dog by Ellen Fischer

Meet the Latkes by Alan Silberberg

Sammy Spider’s First Hanukkah by Sylvia A. Rouss

Shmelf the Hanukkah Elf by Greg Wolfe

The Trees of the Dancing Goats by Patricia Polacco
