As a mom and teacher in the field of Jewish education, I always looked for a good book that tells the story of Chanukah. The children absolutely love this holiday and I wanted to combine the fun aspects of it along with the history and meaning behind it. I could not find one, so I wrote and published If the Candles Could Speak. After much time, effort and thought this is truly a product I am confident readers will benefit from. The best part of creating this book is hearing how others have enjoyed the book. How it has helped them educate our youth. How our history can be exciting, hand-on, and relevant. The feedback has encouraged me to create additional books, with the author Shoshana Lepon, telling the story of our holidays.
This Chanukah book is the Best Chanukah book I have ever read! It tells the story in such a clear and meaningful way for both children and adults. The illustration is magnificent and truly brings the story to life in an incredible way. My favorite part is how the author ends the book, bringing the message of Chanukah to us today.
I just had my big book copy delivered and all I can say is WOW! It is absolutely gorgeous beyond. So amazing for a wide age range and an amazing teaching too. Seriously blown away by this book.
Gorgeous...My teachers were blown away by your book!
My kids loved it! And I used it with Hebrew School kids, and at a senior home visit. Was great!
