``Let's light the lights!'' says Emma's father each year at Hanukkah, and Emma helps him eagerly with the menorah. ``Let's light the lights!'' says her mother each year at Christmas, and just as eagerly Emma decorates the tree. Moorman makes a promising debut here, and her sprightly watercolors set a cheerful note. The book steers clear of the religious significance of these holidays, emphasizing instead the opportunities they create for special moments with friends and family. Families who embrace both Christian and Jewish holidays will find this a welcome addition to the bookshelf. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)
