Quick shout-out to Kar-Ben publishing, who has sent us a couple of great picture books.
The Whispering Town-- a great story about people hiding and helping Jews during WWII. Kids loved it and it's a good introduction to talking about the Holocaust.
Ziggy's Big Idea-- my kids love bagels, so they loved this cute book about the creation of the bagel. Bonus: it includes a recipe!
They have other titles that look fun too, like Latke the Lucky Dog; Alef is for Abba; New Month, New Moon; and Stork's Landing.
Check them out if you're buying Hanukkah gifts!
Another Hanukkah selection that recently came to my attention is THIS ONE....
Now, I'm not Jewish, so I don't get all of the jokes, but you gotta admit some of these are funny.
From the looks of the preview, some are a bit more risque, but it was too quirky not to throw out there. ;)
Finally-- I just want to share one of my favorite Hanukkah songs. Now, there's not actual video on this, but it's worth a listen.
