Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah

(2011)
Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah

The popular English language lyrics to a traditional Yiddish folksong provide the text for this picture book, illustrated by a talented husband-and-wife artist team. The song is enhanced by the colors, the movement, and the joy on the faces of a family in full Hanukkah celebration: decorating, dancing, eating, playing, exchanging presents, honoring the holiday. Everyone joins in the fun, including the dog! The book begins with the musical notation of the folksong; it ends with an author’s note on its history. 

 This is a nice introduction for young singers and listeners, especially preschoolers.
