Summary
& ldquo;This is the dreidel Max takes from the drawer / where he had placed it one year before. & rdquo; Max and his family, from This Is the Turkey, return to celebrate the eight nights of Hanukkah! With Abby Levine & rsquo;s rhythmical, cumulative verses, readers will follow Max through the many beloved traditions of the holiday. Max takes the menorah down from the shelf and polishes it. His sister picks out the colorful candles, the blessing is said, and the family exchanges gifts with one another. Of course, Max & rsquo;s relatives come and latkes are served. Max spins the dreidel and everyone sings songs about the great miracle of Hanukkah. & ldquo;Levine and Billin-Frye use simple, rhyming couplets and brightly colored, full-page illustrations to demonstrate how one family celebrates a holiday. ... The artwork has a cozy feel and is large enough for story hour sharing. A welcome addition to the holiday shelf. & rdquo; & mdash; Booklist & ldquo;A simple introduction to the Festival of Lights, told in rhymed couplets. ... Billin-Frye & rsquo;s colored-pencil, acrylic, and gouache pictures illustrate the rhyme in an appealing and child-friendly way. & rdquo; & mdash; School Library Journal & ldquo;Appealing, cartoon-like drawings of Max and his warm, cozy family match the easy rhythm of the text. & rdquo; & mdash; Kirkus Reviews Abby Levine is the author of numerous books for children including This Is the Pumpkin and Gretchen Groundhog, It & rsquo;s Your Day! She was a children & rsquo;s book editor for many years. She lives in Illinois
