A noteworthy review of Nonfiction Readers: Level 2 from Children's Literature on December 15, 2002
A leveled nonfiction reader, this title is elementary, straightforward, and informative for children who have never heard of the Jewish holiday. Simple sentences introduce the holiday, tell how long it lasts, describe how to light the menorah, and present special foods and games. Full-color photographs of an appealingly casual family celebrating the holiday add to the book’s strength. A basic introduction for beginning readers, this would be useful for most collections, especially where there is not a wealth of Hanukkah materials.
