My daughter loves reading, and like most toddlers, her attention span isn’t the longest. She is entertained by reading her favorite book five times in a row (she’s currently very into one of her troll books). As much as I love seeing her enjoy her favorite book over and over again, by the fourth read, I’m a little over it. And this is why I like to really take advantage of holidays and special occasions to buy new books on new topics.
With Hanukkah quickly approaching (FYI, it begins on December 10!), it’s time to update our bookshelves with new stories teaching my daughter about the festival of lights. We’ve discovered a wide range of Hanukkah focused stories, from educational to humorous. Not only do these books give us a break from our classic favorites, but they also add some excitement to the holiday season.
With a lot of focus on Christmas this time of year, those of us who celebrate Hanukkah can sometimes feel a little left out (to be honest, I’ve always wanted a tree!).
With a lot of focus on Christmas, those of us who celebrate Hanukkah can sometimes feel a little left out (to be honest, I’ve always wanted a tree!). But when I read books about our own celebration, it makes it more exciting and fun for our family.
Even if you don’t celebrate Hanukkah, remember it’s important for all kids to learn about and celebrate other cultures and traditions. So no matter your religious background, consider adding some Hanukkah books to your next library pick-up or home collection.
Here are 10 Hanukkah books to check out this December.
