Shalom Sesame: The Count’s Hanukkah Countdown

Tilda Balsley and Ellen Fischer, illus. by Tom Leigh. Kar-Ben, $16.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7613-7557-9
Some of Sesame Street’s favorite characters and their Israeli friends join together for a Hanukkah party in this delightful number story, the first of four books in the Shalom Sesame series. As Grover prepares for and participates in a holiday party, the Count joins in the festivities and keeps count of just how many candles are being lit, how many latkes are on the table, and how much gelt is being used for a game of dreidel. Children will laugh at the Count’s affinity for the number eight, while the lively, fun illustrations bring the excitement of Hanukkah to life. Ages 2–6. (Sept.)
