Is It Hanukkah Yet?

by Chris Barash
Illustrated by Alessandra Psacharopulo

Published by Albert Whitman, 2015
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠪07533840

Ages 37

揥hen all forest creatures search for a den / Where they抣l snuggle and sleep till spring blossoms again Hanukkah is on its way. A rhyming story with a repeated refrain builds excitement as Hanukkah approaches. Attaching intentional references to winter抯 arrival (搇ayers and layers of warm winter clothes) and activities such as baking, singing holiday songs, and gathering with family and friends to the specific traditions of Hanukkah makes this sweet package feel a little subversive in the best way, serving as a reminder that there is more than one cherished observance near the end of the year. Warm stylized illustrations are an inviting backdrop for the appealing narrative.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
