We have quite an array of lift the flap books, most from Karen Katz. I was super excited to get this one because my husband is from Israel and I am not Jewish, so we celebrate both Hannukah & Christmas in our house. I wanted a fun, colorful book to go along with the array of Christmas books we have.It does the job. However, don't like the curtain flaps... they get ripped off more times than I'd like. I always tape them back with packing tape (which is a great book repair medium), yet they still manage to find their way off the book.
Karen Katz's books are fairly formulaic (how many things are hiding "behind the eggs," anyway?!), but it's a formula that works. We pack this book away during the year, so it's fairly fresh come Hannukah. My toddler loves lifting the flaps and yelling "no" as the baby searches for the dreidel, and he's definitely learned some of the holiday vocab from repeat readings. All in all, it's nice to have a Hannukah book from a familiar series. It's also made a great gift to toddler friends.
The Short of It::: This colorful lift-the-flack book won't be for everyone, but it fills a niche for parents wanting to teach older babies and toddlers the names of various items associated with Hanukkah. There's a menorah, gelt, potato pancakes, presents and other things.The cover features an eye catching dreidel in shiny metallics. The inside features colorful, baby-friendly artwork.Pam T~mom/bloggerbooksforkids-reviews
This is a "peekaboo" book that allows the reader to search for the dreidel alongside the baby in the book. Each spread has a question, for example, "Is baby's dreidel behind the curtains?" and a flap that the reader can flip up to look for the dreidel. On each page, the reader discovers some other Chanukah-related item (Menorah, latkes, gelt, etc) instead of the dreidel. Finally the dreidel is found on the last page.This is one of my son's (11 mo old) absolute favorite books. He picks it up and brings it to me to read several times a day. He loves the peekaboo game and lifts the flaps himself. I like that it familiarizes him with the words and objects related to the Chanukah celebration. We have other Chanukah board books that cover the meaning behind the holiday (for example My First Chanukah by Tomie dePaola) but I realize now that they're so far beyond my son's comprehension that I laugh at myself for buying them. This book, however, is right at his level.My one annoyance with the book is that the bag of gelt is called "gold coins" and the latkes are called "potato pancakes." It's easily remedied by just using the words I prefer.
Great! My son loves these lift the flap books!Fun stories with an element of discovery and learning!Just as much fun as Karen Katz other books "where is baby's mommy" and "where is baby's belly button"A must for infants and toddlers!
Written by the same lady as the "Where is Baby's Belly Button" this book is exactly what I expected. Cute graphics, lifting flaps on each page. A much better Chanukkah book than others I've gotten.
Another great book by Katz. Great age appropriate illustrations and story line. I am a lead teacher in an infant room and this was engaging yet simple enough for my students.
My 9-mo old son loves lifting the flaps. Its not just finding the dreidel, you find other items along the way.
