It is Hanukkah time and the family is ready to light the menorah candles. Every night they light one more candle. They also enjoy special treats that they only have during Hanukkah. There are latkes to eat, a driedel to play with, gifts to give, chocolate candies to eat, and, on the last day of the celebration, a feast to enjoy.

In this festive little board book, Melissa Sweet’s unique multimedia artwork brings David Martin’s simple text to life. Little children can watch the menorah fill with candles as they turn the pages, and they can also enjoy learning about the traditions of Hanukkah.
