Now even the youngest readers can celebrate Hanukkah by joining Latke and his zany friends for an eight-night-long party!

Alan Silberberg brings his signature humor to the board book audience with a silly, accessible introduction to Hanukkah. Latke is having a party to celebrate the miracle of the oil, and before the holiday is over, all his friends will join him.

On the first night of Hanukkah, the latke lights the menorah.

On the second night of Hanukkah, the gelt gets sweet and giddy...

The party grows and grows until the eighth night of Hanukkah, when Latke's home is full and all eight candles on the menorah are lit (plus the shamas!).

Series Overview: We have an ABCs of Jewish foods board book planned for Spring 2024.
