The ultimate Chanukah gift—a glorious celebration of the true spirit of the holiday from a pop-up master and an acclaimed poet.
Open this beautiful gift book and follow the Festival of Lights through place and time—from Herod’s temple to a shtetl in Russia; from a refugee ship bound for the New World to an Israeli kibbutz. Inspired by Michael J. Rosen’s reverent poem, Robert Sabuda’s striking pop-ups depict each night’s menorah in a different scene, using such imagery as desert tents, olive trees, and a final panorama of skyscrapers. Sure to be a treasured family heirloom, this stunning collaboration showcases the spirit and resilience of a people in search of home.
Michael J. Rosen has written or edited more than 135 books for children and adults, including The Hound Dog’s Haiku and The Maine Coon’s Haiku. A college zoology major, he finds that many of his books are inspired by his lifelong observations of animals. He lives in the Appalachian foothills of central Ohio.
