We have a very small religious school. Only 9 children from kindergarten through 6th grade. Wanted to do something with them for Chanukah. Found Latkes, Latkes. Read it to them. They loved it! I rewrote it as a play and they performed it. The parents and other members of the congregation loved it! The latkes luncheon after the play was the sour cream and applesauce for the day! I was extremely pleased with this book!
In a public school, it's hard to walk that line between religion and secularism. This story is one of the ones I use because it's also good fun for the kids. My second graders love the repetition of the chorus and the boys getting in trouble. It's great for teaching inference too. I like any book where I can legitimately get any skill taught during the holiday wind-up period. The illustrations are also lovely.I used the Kindle Reader on my computer and my Interactive White board to project the book to the class. It was a new and interesting way to "read" the story to the class.
This Chanukah is an excellent story for the season. Sadie and her four younger brothers are poor and always hungry, but Sadie is given a frying pan that cooks up latkes on demand. When her brothers become involved in the find, trouble ensues.
What can I add? The reviews above give you the proper feeling for the story. Best of all are the female heroes, and the good deeds performed. Just in case you happen to obtain a magic pan of your own, the secret words to stop it are the translation of "Nes Gadol Haya Sham"
Latkes, Latkes, Good to Eat: A story of Chanukah. This was an excellent book for lower elementary grades to learn about Hanakah. Latkes, Latkes is easy to read as well for older more skilled students.
This lovely story can be shared with students of many different faiths. It lends itself beautifully to a younger audience. Every year, during the winter holidays, I search for that special book to inform children about Chanukah. This book was just delightful to use! The children were mesmerized by it! We had so much fun reading it together at my school library in Homestead, Florida. I just loved reading it aloud to the children. You should have seen their faces! You would have loved watching their expressions and shouts of joy as the story progressed.
I love this book! We get it out to read every Chanukah and its always a favorite. It appeals to a wide age range of kids - 3 on up to at least 8.
