This picture book with simple text and attractive watercolour illustrations shows how one family celebrates the festival of Hanukkah. With all the candles on the menorah lit, everyone looks forward to their festive meal, which includes latkes, the traditional potato pancakes. For the children it is an exciting day;
they play with dreidels, and look forward to the exchange of presents and the games they will all play. An afterword gives a brief account of the origin of this Jewish festival of light.
