Publisher's Weekly Review

The On My Own Holidays series offers explanatory information about different traditions in a format suited to beginning readers and in an impartial, instructional voice. Hanukkah by Cathy Goldberg Fishman, illus. by Mary O'Keefe Young, offers a detailed version of the Hanukkah story and describes how Jews celebrate. Also in the series is Ramadan by Susan Douglass, illus. by Jeni Reeves, and Christmas Around the World by Emily Kelly, illus. by Joni Oeltjenbruns, the latter originally issued in 1986.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-3-The first two-thirds of this book presents a simple history of the holiday, giving beginning readers a feeling for the events that took place. The last third of the text explores some of the ways Hanukkah is celebrated today and includes instructions on how to play dreidel. Sketchy watercolor illustrations show a multigenerational family enjoying various activities. Filling a need for material written at an easy reading level, Hanukkah does an adequate job of introducing children to the history and traditions surrounding the holiday.-M. A. (c) Copyright 2010.
