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

December 4, 2018: Crafting

In the midst of prepping for my room this week, I realized that I need to gather materials for the parent gift I need to create for my familes. I already know that I won’t be able to make these gifts at work. I guess that’s why it’s taking me so long to do them. I need to make sure that I don’t get too far behind in doing them!

The Hanukkah craft I made with my kids really worked out yesterday! I made menorah hats with the kids. They didn’t want to take them off, which was a good sign. 🙂
