The Eighth Menorah by Lauren L. Wohl and illustrated by Laura Hughes is the sweet story of a little boy who is making a Menorah in Sunday School. He wants to give it to his family but is worried that they already have too many. He ends up doing a beautiful thing by giving it his Grandmother for her new home. Not only does he share it with her but with her new community. I love the this little boy, he is so sweet I wished I could hug him myself. The illustrations are wonderful and match the text perfectly. This is a great book to read to children as it shows them how to share and how giving can be better than receiving. In old adage but one that really bears repeating. A must have new Hanukkah book for children to treasure.

The Eighth Menorah by Lauren L. Wohl illustrator Laura Hughes
Hanukkah is just a few days away. Not only is it early this year but it coincides with Thanksgiving. Today's book, while not about the duel holiday, is a wonderful book about family and sharing.
