“Hanukkah candles shining bright / One more candle every night.” With each turn of the page of this demurely sized board book, another night of Hanukkah is marked. There are latkes to eat one night, dreidels to spin another. Presents and Hanukkah gelt, special songs, shadow play, a story—all mark the nights of Hanukkah. David Martin’s simple text is enriched by Melissa Sweet’s inviting illustrations showing four young children celebrating each night on the right-hand page of each spread, and another candle shining brightly in the menorah on the left-hand page. (Ages 1–3)
