Sylvia Rouss has created an inviting introduction to the symbols of Chanukah in this touch and feel board book. The rhyming text will captivate young ears while leading children through the main components of the holiday. The shiny shield, scratchy clay jug, and sticky sufganiot are just a few of the tactile experiences presented and will certainly enliven the young pre-reader, who will ask for the book again and again. The illustrations are timeless and reflect a traditional family celebration.
A Touch of Chanukah would be a welcome addition to Parenting, Mommy and Me, and Pre-School programs, as well as the family bookshelf.
