Happy Hanukkah! 10 Read Aloud Titles for Hanukkah

24 Dec


I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know a lot about Hanukkah, I grew up in a small town in (fairly) rural, western PA. We had only a few kids in our school that didn’t look like me, and we knew no one who celebrated Jewish holidays. So, take this holiday list with a grain of salt, there may be better options out there (which I’d love to know about!). I took a look at a number of Hanukkah booklists available online and chose the titles that I thought looked not only interesting, but also were an accurate representation of the holiday and the religion.  Happy Hanukkah!

  1. Daddy Christmas & Hanukkah Mama by Selina Alko
  2. The Hanukkah Hop! by Erica Silverman
  3. The Eighth Menorah by Lauren L. Wohl
  4. Hanukkah Bear by Eric A. Kimmel

  6. Hanukkah Haiku by Harriet Ziefert
