Eight Winter Nights: A Family Hanukkah Book by Laura Krauss Melmed , Elisabeth Schlossberg (Illustrator).
Moishe's Miracle author Laura Krauss Melmed and illustrator Elisabeth Schlossberg celebrate Hanukkahin joyful action rhymes, festive poems, and exuberant scenes of family life. From traditional holiday foods to the story of the Maccabees, they capture the warm sights, sounds, and tastes of this wintertime festival.
PreS-Gr 1?A family's preparations for and celebration of Hanukkah are described in short, informal verse, from the two-line ?Third Night? (?At our window we will show/How warmly our three candles glow) to the bouncy, eight-line poem celebrating a favorite latke go-with (?Applesauce, applesauce on your nose./Applesauce, applesauce on your toes??). Pencil and pastel cartoon-style illustrations depict a smiling extended family talking, eating, and playing together amid warm glowing colors and the symbols of the holiday. A short description and history of Hanukkah are appended. A pleasant if nonessential addition to the holiday shelf.
