This story is for children to read themselves, and/or sing along to the “Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah” song. This story intrigues children because it provides a plot with a use of language that is age-appropriate for lower elementary grades. The illustrations correspond to both the text and the setting; and hold interest to the reader, which enhance and add to the story. Instead of using characters, Roth uses mice, which are not presented in a negative light; therefore, no negative stereotypes are repr ...more
This has been one of my favorite holiday books for a couple of years now. Using the traditional "Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah" text (and music, if you choose to sing it), the book is an engaging introduction to Hanukkah for children who are unfamiliar with the celebration, and a wonderful affirmation for children who themselves celebrate the Festival of Lights.

Musical text pairs with papercut mixed media collage artwork. A family of mice celebrates the holiday with traditional symbols represented. The artwork is a bit stronger than the text for me, but the sheet music is included should readers want to perform the story. PreK-2.
A cute introduction with colorful collages introduce the activities of the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah. Very simple text and a song at the end! Grinned when I saw what book the little mice family were reading.

This book is great for Hanukkah. The pictures are whimsical collages of different materials. This book is the holiday song of "Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah".
The words to a traditional Hanukkah song are illustrated with adorable collage mice. This simple book is great for toddler and preschool audiences.
