Learning about celebrations both those your family celebrates and ones that you do not is an important part of learning about the world. My children often see menorahs and dreidels at the store and wonder what they are for. While I can give them the basics about Hanukkah, I find books to be an even better resource! Here are some wonderful books that answer the question “What is Hanukkah?”
