From the moment I looked at the cover, this book became one of my favorites for Hanukkah. The paintings are as vibrant, beautiful, and exciting as the holiday itself. A wonderful book to introduce children to Hanukkah and to the creativity of the Haiku form of poetry. "Hanukkah Haiku" will certainly become one of those treasured holiday books we return to year after year.
Books for Children Ages: 1-5 years old
Recommendations for Family Reading: Haiku is one of those art forms that can be appreciated on different levels at different ages. A good read-aloud book for older children to read to younger, or take the opportunity to talk about different literary forms with your older child.
