Eight Winter Nights: A Family Hanukkah Book by Laura Krauss Melmed
This is a cute Hanukkah book told in rhyme. Each page features several short verses telling about some aspect of the holiday and celebration. The length and format means that parents can pick and chose poems when reading to impatient readers, making this accessible to even the youngest audiences. The end of the book includes a very simple version of the miracle of Hanukkah, fairly sanitized (a band of fighters battle an army) as well as a glossary of terms used in Hanukkah traditions. My one small complaint is that they don’t actually explain the how to play the dreidel game, despite naming the Hebrew letters.
