The Story of Hanukkah

Amy Ehrlich, Author, Ori Sherman, Illustrator Dial Books $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0615-6
This picture book introduction to Hanukkah, the Jewish ``Festival of Lights,'' is the perfect complement to last season's The Four Questions . Sherman's bold art, reminiscent of illuminated manuscripts, is paired with a dramatic text. The Hanukkah story is a timeless reminder of devotion to God; Ehrlich's retelling captures his tone while communicating the intensity of the Maccabees' faith, the fierceness of the battle and the joy in the rededication of the temple of Jerusalem. Sherman's glowing images reflect the intense flames of faith, underscoring the power of history and the continuing vitality of the Jewish people. All ages. (Sept.)
