From a pop-up master and an acclaimed poet and author comes a glorious celebration of the true spirit of Chanukah.
Open this beautiful gift book and follow the Festival of Lights through place and time — from Herod’s temple to a shtetl in Russia; from a refugee ship bound for the New World to an Israeli kibbutz. Inspired by Michael J. Rosen’s reverent poem, Robert Sabuda’s striking pop-ups depict each night’s menorah in a different scene, using imagery such as desert tents, pushcart lanterns, olive trees, and a final panorama of skyscrapers. Sure to be a treasured family heirloom, this stunning collaboration showcases the spirit and resilience of a people in search of home.
Robert Sabuda is the creator of many best-selling pop-up books, including THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, and the WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ. He is also the co-creator of the Encyclopedia Prehistorica and Encyclopedia Mythologica series. He lives in New York City.
