Just Enough Is Plenty: A Hanukkah Tale

by Barbara Diamond Goldin
Illustrated by Seymour Chwast

Published by Viking Kestrel, 1988
32 pages
ISBN: 9780670818525

Ages 5-11

Even though Malka's family has barely enough kopeks to make Hanukkah latkes, they welcome a stranger who appears at the door. He first enchants the children by playing dreidel with real coins and then by reading stories "about kind people and cruel people, about angels and wonder-working rabbis, about beggars and miracles." The whole house seems to be filled with guests, and the unnamed stranger's generosity fulfills the tradition in more than one way. A note about Hanukkah closes a book illustrated with beautiful full-color paintings.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
