Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This was a clever Hanukkah rendition of ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, filled with catchy rhymes and explanations for different Hanukkah traditions. It moves right along and is a fun one to listen to being read aloud!

This rhyming book about Hanukkah mimics the “Twelve Days of Christmas” story. It’s fun to read and does a good job talking about Hanukkah, introducing vocabulary, and being entertaining. The illustrations are also pretty cute!
