One of the things that I love to do on my blog is write reviews for books that I feel are amusing, enchanting and enriching.
One such book is a little gem, Barnyard Bubbe’s Hanukkah, written by Joni Klein-Higger and Barbara Sharf, illustrated by Monica Gutierrez. Kar-Ben Publishing.
This is a super adorable Hanukkah counting book that also introduces kids to farm animals.
The colorful warm illustrations have a great child appeal. To add to the suspense, the illustrator provides visual clues of each animal’s leg as it knocks on Bubbe’s door and only at the end we get to see a full image of each animal.
All in all, a perfect book to read with your little ones while lighting the menorah and eating latkes. Highly recommended.
