whilst Grandpa used to be a boy growing to be up in Europe, he celebrated Hanukkah in a lot the way in which young children do at the present time. He sang songs, performed dreidel, and ate potato pancakes. but Hanukkah used to be very different. His kin couldn't percentage the enjoyment of Hanukkah with the realm. They have been pressured to monitor the vacation at the back of locked doorways and drawn curtains. In these days, a guy got here with infantrymen to persecute the Jews--just as a overseas king had performed centuries past in Jerusalem. Sheldon Oberman's attractive tale explores the that means of Hanukkah in a fashion that enlightens and conjures up. Neil Waldman's radiant illustrations trap the message of pleasure and braveness that's the competition of lighting.
