Wishing everyone wonderful and safe Hanukkah celebrations this weekend! 🕎
Today’s #CBTbt is dedicated to 25 years of Jane Breskin Zalben’s Jewish holiday picture books about Beni and his family! 🎊 BENI’S FAMILY TREASURY is a beautifully illustrated 🎨 and elegantly designed collection of beloved Beni holiday stories that includes a glossary of Jewish terms, favorite recipes, and a ribbon maker and nameplate 🎀
Continuing our Hanukkah celebrations with Michael Lowenthal’s THE PATERNITY TEST, which Jewish Book World says deftly deals with “interfaith relationships, sibling rivalries, parental expectations, infidelity, the fluidity of desire, and the diversity of Jewish culture...” This darkly funny novel follows Pat Faunce as he yearns for more than his carefree NYC life 🗽and his open relationship with Stu, an airline pilot from a fraught Jewish family. His desire to be a father leads him and Stu to Cape Cod, where they enlist Debora as a surrogate mother. 👨👨👧 But is starting a new family worth risking the one you have? A finalist for the Lambda Literary Awards🏆, THE PATERNITY TEST is out now!
On the third night of Chanukah 🕎 I clap my hands to see 👏🏼 Three challahs 🥖 Two Maccabees ✌🏼 And a present waiting for me 🎁 ... THE EIGHT NIGHTS OF CHANUKAH by Leslea Newman incorporates the popular music of “12 Days of Christmas” into a Chanukah book that’s perfect for children of any religious orientation! A #PB for the whole family 👨👩👧👦 to share.
Happy Hanukkah! 🕎 Anthologist Lee Bennett Hopkins brings together today’s best children’s poets in this joyful collection of holiday verse. ✨ Perfect for beginning readers as they celebrate the holiday! 📖 ... #leebennetthopkins #holidaybooks #books #read #hanukkah #hanukkahlights #poetry #poems #kidlit #raisingreaders #art #illustration #kidspoems #holidayreads #tbr #bookworm
