Seven new books for the eight days of Hanukkah.
In this board book, Corduroy, who sports a purple yarmulke in addition to his customary green corduroy overalls, entertains a pink patchwork bunny, a rag doll, a long-eared dog and a blue mouse for a Hanukkah celebration. Once his guests arrive, they light the menorah, eat potato latkes, exchange gifts, spin the dreidel and sing Hanukkah songs together. A straightforward, lighthearted introduction to the holiday, featuring a familiar face. Up to age 2.
