" This was a cute and enjoyable Hanukkah story. " said.

" a favorite children's story in the telling of celebrating Hanukkah. " said.

"Students in our predominantly Gentile elementary school enjoy listening to this heartwarming tale of a poor Eastern European Jewish family near the city of Minsk celebrating Hanukkah during a winter blizzard. Their potatoes and apples are hidden beneath the freezing snow before they have a chance to make latkes and applesauce for their celebration. Despite their hunger, they take in a stray kitten and dog, who are able to locate potatoes and apples on the eighth night of Hanukkah after the skies clear.
Since our students know so little about Jewish family life, this tender story gives them a glimpse into a loving family and the way they celebrate the holidays during this particular harsh winter.

The book concludes with a brief description of Hanukkah and a recipe for making latkes (which is delicious, since I made them the first year we got this book for our school library). (December 18, 2001.)
" said.

"Such a sweet story. A family is surprised by lots of early snow, leaving them with neither potatoes nor apples for Hanukkah latkes. Nevermind, they still have each other and their health. But as the nights wear on and there is less and less food, they begin to worry. One night, a kitten arrives and though they are barely feeding themselves, they decide to rescue and keep it. The next night, a skinny puppy shows up. Oh, Logan really loved this story! Warm, soft illustrations and gentle lessons about love and giving. The only picky little thing that bothered me was that the illustrations show them lighting all the candles every night. I wonder how that got by the editors? " said.

" This is a very sweet picture book to read during Hanukkah. " said.
