Eight Winter Nights: A Family Hanukkah Book

Laura Krauss Melmed, illus. by Elisabeth Schlossberg, Chronicle, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8118-5552-5
This collection of brief, playful poems is likely to inspire countless religious school holiday pageants. As they move through each night, the simple rhymes ("The shammes candle stands up straight,/ A servant and quite proud of it") get a big assist from both Schlossberg's pastels, predominantly in warm shades of pink, purple, and orange, and her tender portrayal of a close-knit extended family caught up in holiday excitement. Ages 4–8. (Dec.)
