Cover: Eight Is Great

“A new Hanukkah board book, told in simple rhyme, Eight is Great shares a family cel­ebrating with a multitude of holiday customs. Each page has two sentences, each with a con­nection to the number eight and the holiday, such as ‘two dreidels with four sides—that’s eight,’ and ‘we’ll give eight presents—I can’t wait’ while ‘dad serves eight latkes from the plate.’ The reader clearly feels an apprecia­tion of close and loving family relationships. Illustrations are colorful, reader-friendly, and age-appropriate. This is the newest entry in the ‘Very First Board Book’ series from Kar-Ben, joining others which teach about Jewish holidays and customs.

Eight is Great is appropriate for the young­est listener, as a read-to. It is recommended for children ages one to four and would be valuable in pre-school classrooms.” — Jewish Book World
