Hanukkah falls on December 23rd and I am beginning to plan events for my counting board book.
It’s a PJ Library book, published in 2018 by Kar Ben Publishing https://www.karben.com
In addition, Dreidel Day received the PJ Library Author Incentive Award.
I perform Dreidel Day with my adorable cat puppets, who look like the cats in the book.
This storytelling, for children, ages 1-6 and families, incorporates Hanukkah sing-along, lighting the menorah (electric) and counting dreidels, candles, Hanukkah gelt and cut-up paper latkes.
Children decorate their own coloring pages and learn what the Hebrew letters on the dreidel mean.
We also play Spin the Tail on the Cat.
