I guess some might not like that the Channukah traditional objects are set to the song "Twelve Nights of Christmas" but my non-Jewish husband and me (I am Jewish) found it adorable. We sang along with our son who was 2 1/2 last Channukah and he really enjoyed it. He even would sing "FIVE GOLDEN GELT" in the right tune! It doesnt tell the story of Channukah but it shows family togetherness and all the typical holiday objects/symbols. Enjoyable.
On the First Night of Chanukah tells how Jewish families celebrate the holiday of Chanukah with gifts and family get togethers. This is a great book to introduce multicultural differences using a the rhyme of a familiar poem.
I love finding new books and things for my children we don't have a large jewish community here so finding holiday items and books is hard to do. I wanted to start early and I saw this is similar to the 12 days of Christmas so I wanted to get it to have it not only for here at home but for the kids to take to school. Each day for 8 days the book talks about what she is given from everyone in the family. The pictures on each page are vibrant and colorful full of joy from hannukah. We have only had this book a few days and my children have read it a few times each day.
