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

" “Latkes and Applesauce” is the story of a family that is stuck home with a blizzard that covers all the apples and potatoes, thus making the traditional Hanukkah latkes and applesauce impossible. But as the Menashe family takes in some surprising strangers, the feast becomes a possibility once again. " 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.)
