Hanukkah Lights

David Martin, Author, Melissa Sweet, Illustrator , illus. by Melissa Sweet. Candlewick $5.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-7636-3029-4

In this cheerful board book, five children light a new candle on their menorah for each night of Hanukkah as they indulge in activities like exchanging gifts, making shadow puppets and reading a story. The text is simple and soothing—“Hanukkah candles, shining bright./ One more candle every night”—while patterns as cozy as a patchwork quilt are featured throughout: the children are dressed in festive floral and plaid prints, and the candles they place on the menorah feature stripes, dots and curlicues. Also available: Christmas Tree . Ages 1–3. (Sept.)
