What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A delightful holiday offering no matter what you celebrate in December!

I am a mix of two traditions. From Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama. How lucky am I?

Holiday time at Sadie’s house means golden gelt sparkling under the Christmas tree, candy canes hanging on eight menorah branches, voices uniting to sing carols about Macabees and the manger, and latkes on the mantel awaiting Santa’s arrival.

Selina Alko’s joyous celebration of blended families will make the perfect holiday gift for the many Americans who celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This book shows how both Hanukkah and Christmas can co-exist in one home over the holiday season, their traditions intermixing and adding to each other! I enjoyed that this showed some traditional elements from both cultures in a passing rather than fully educational way.

B is for Bookworm
Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This little girl gets to celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah and talks about how they intertwine traditions from both holidays. There’s not a huge storyline to this book, but I liked the diversity in celebrating both holidays. There’s a calendar at the end of the story showing when a bunch of other holidays are, which is fun, and there’s also a recipe at the back of the book!
