With a simple rhyming meter, this board-book introduction to blessings, candles, latkes, and holiday joy runs through the high points of Hanukkah ("Dreidels spinning through the night / Chocolate gelt--come take a bite") during a friendly eighth-night gathering at a rabbit family's house. The pastel-toned mixed-media illustrations show the visiting "friends and neighbors" as a congenial assortment of animals. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

In lines with simple meter that all rhyme with the second word in the title, this board book runs through the high points of Hanukkah ("Dreidels spinning through the night / Chocolate gelt—come take a bite") during a friendly eighth-night gathering at a rabbit family's house. The pastel-toned mixed-media illustrations show the visiting "friends and neighbors" as a congenial assortment of animals, and they include accurate holiday details such as a row of dreidels with correctly ordered Hebrew letters. A very first introduction to blessings, candles, and latkes as well as holiday joy: "Hanukkah—a wondrous sight!" shoshana flax Copyright 2016 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

Newman (Ketzel, the Cat Who Composed) and Husband (The Noisy Foxes) team up for a blithe rhyming account of a festive Hanukkah celebration: "Friends and neighbors to invite./ Ancient blessings we recite./ Gleaming candles burning bright./ Crispy latkes taste just right." The celebrants include a family of rabbits, a mouse and her daughter, a tall alligator, and an owl who walks with a cane, creating a sense of warm inclusivity throughout. Newman hits all the key Hanukkah moments ("Dreidels spinning through the night./ Chocolate gelt—come take a bite"), and Husband's collages brim with joyful energy. Ages 1–4.
