Hanukkah Haiku

Blue Apple Books ISBN 9781934706336

I have been reviewing the December calendars from our centers today and the monthly theme is holidays around the world. In researching Hanukkah, which begins at sundown on December 11th this year, I found several glowing reviews for a book called Hanukkah Haiku with poetry by Harriet Ziefert in the haiku poetic form and paintings by Karla Gudeon.  

The book is written for preschoolers and is designed with pages of varying widths so that each time you turn the page, another candle appears on the Menorah, the ceremonial candleholder used during Hanukkah. 

When you are shopping for books for holiday gifts, if you start your hunt at www.goodshop.com a portion of your purchase will benefit Day Nursery when you indicate that you support Day Nursery Association of Indianapolis.  

Happy Holidays!
