Praise For…

"Stacia captures the historical, spiritual and fun aspects of Hannukah. Her creative writing and engaging style make the holiday come alive. I could smell the potato pancakes as I was enjoying the book. I heard the dreidel spin and children laugh as I was looking at the pictures and reading the inviting narrative. After reading this book, those who celebrate Hannukah will have their knowledge and joy expanded and those who haven't yet celebrated Hannukah will now make it part of their yearly traditions." —Rabbi Richard Steinberg

"Stacia provides Jewish and non-Jewish readers alike a delightful, accessible introduction to the Hanukkah holiday—its history, global practices, and significance. Brightly colored illustrations enrich the text." —Henry Herz, author and co-editor of Coming of Age: 13 B'nai Mitzvah Stories
