ABOUT: Caleb is excited to spin the dreidel! His family is celebrating Hanukkah. For eight days, they light candles on the menorah. They eat latkes and open presents. And of course, they play the dreidel game!


My Review: A good starter book for young readers to learn about Hanukkah. What’s great about this series is that it makes learning about different cultures and holidays fun in a way that entices the reader to want to know more. Caleb’s Hanukkah is very informative with beautiful illustrations to enhance the learning experience. I know this is a nonfiction picture book, but the ending was rather abrupt. Still I liked the book and illustrations and appreciate this educational series. I would recommend this book to kids who want to learn more about Hanukkah, its history, its traditions, and how it is celebrated.
