“While most of the stories I’ve recommended here presuppose a general knowledge of the holiday, All About Hanukkah–part of the wonderful All About series from Kar-Ben Publishing–is a great first-time introduction to the holiday. It covers everything you’d want to know: the story of Chanukah, the blessings over the candles, the rules of the dreidel game, and recipes for traditional Chanukah foods such as latkes and sufganiyot (doughnuts).”—Noodlenuts

AJL Newsletter

“The bright colors and attention to detail make these books a joy to read. . . recommended not only for students beginning to learn about the holidays, but also for teachers and parents to use as guidelines for teaching children who have not yet been exposed to the holidays in depth. Any synagogue or day-school library will benefit from adding these titles to their collections. Also, any library serving a population of teachers will find these titles useful.” —AJL Newsletter

Jewish Journal

“Kreiswirth’s vibrant illustrations make this title stand out among other Hanukkah books.” —The Jewish Journal

The Story Bag

“Interesting and informative for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers, this little book really does tell ALL about Hanukkah. . .” —The Story Bag
