Chanukah Books for Young Readers

From our librarian, Thea Crook, two recommendations for Chanukah books for young readers:

Without overtly combining Thanksgiving and Chanukah, Gracie's Night by Lynn Taylor Gordon is about being grateful and thus works for both holidays. Most beautifully, it is written in verse. When I read this two our first graders, halfway into the book a boy said, "This book rhymes!" That, to me, is a sign that it is very well done because the language isn't repetitious and belabored. The children were riveted.

In One Candle by Eve Bunting, a family develops its very own ritual for Chanukah to remember a relative who died in the Holocaust.
