Description

A retelling of the classic Hanukkah song, just in time for the holiday season!

I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay,
And when it's dry and ready, then dreidel I shall play!

It's time for Hanukkah, and Hanukkah is a time for family. This reasonably priced hardcover picture book features the classic holiday dreidel song, with extra rhyming verses added on. We see the family gathering at a child's house, mama and child working together to make latkes (a classic Hanukkah treat), the family lighting the menorah, and then a spirited game of dreidel. The game is described in easy-to-follow language so that children can follow along and play at home themselves!
