The winter holiday season is upon us and, as always, we turn to books for sustenance and celebration. You might be looking for stories that capture the spirit and meaning of the season, or maybe you are looking for books to help you explain the traditions and accoutrements of your faith or that of your neighbors or classmates.
Here are some holiday books for kids that can help you do just that as you and your students learn about and celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah.
Hanukkah Children's Books
Happy Hanukkah, Curious George by H.A. Rey and Margret Rey
On the eighth night of Hanukkah, George and the Man in the Yellow Hat attend a Hanukkah party. They light the menorah, spin the dreidel, make latkes, and learn the importance of mitzvah. The tabbed board book makes sections easy to spot. Included is a latke recipe and instructions for making a dreidel, along with the rules for playing the dreidel game. (Ages 3–6)
