Staff Reviews

Spanish and English words and phrases fill this alphabet book. Worlds you might know, such as L is for latkes, but also words that maybe do not translate right away for your English speaker, such as J is for Hanukkah. It is clever, interesting, and filled with wonderment. Melanie Romero took it all and had fun, while being educational. Colorful illustrations tie it together. — Jeanette


Introduce your little ones to the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, or Januc , and how illuminated candles remind us of miracles

Grab your dreidels and start frying your latkes - the Festival of Lights is fast approaching

This alphabetical hardcover delves into each letter of the Spanish alphabet to bring to life the many items - from aceite and bendiciones to kugel and tierra - that shed light on the miracle of Hanukkah. Observe families lighting the menorah, spinning the dreidel, hearing the Hanukkah story, and indulging in latkes and sufganiyot for eight precious nights.

This holiday hardcover is Cassie Gonzales's debut as a children's book illustrator; her colorful illustrations honor the palette and importance of Hanukkah. Parents will appreciate this bilingual English-Spanish hardcover due to the celebration of Hanukkah, but also for the cultural, religious, and historical symbolism behind the Jewish holiday that occurs around the same season as Christmas and holds a special meaning in the multicultural Latin-Jewish community.
