Last Minute Kids’ Book Ideas for Hanukkah

Hanukkah is only a day away, which really just means one thing: It’s crunch time for finding that perfect gift for your kid, nephew, or niece. If you’re anything like us, you want to get your kids books, because books are awesome. Look no further. We’ve got what you need.

With Hanukkah lasting all the way through New Year’s Day, it’s the perfect time for your kids to pick up a new book and read–and even better if the book talks about the story of Hanukkah itself.

We asked you, our readers, to recommend your favorites to us. Here’s what you said:

1. “‘The Christmas Menorah‘ (a true story about a small town in Montana),Pearl Moskovitz’s Last Stand,’ ‘The Blessing Cup,’ & ‘The Keeping Quilt,’ by Patricia Polacco (both about passing down traditions). ‘The Only One Club‘ is a sweet on for younger elementary age children.”

2. “‘The Hanukkah Guest‘ by Erik Kimmel is one of my son’s favorites.Hanukkah Bear‘ is another version of the same story.”

3. “‘Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins‘ by Eric Carl.”

4. “Where is Baby’s Dreidel? My daughter is 2, and it’s her current favorite.”

5. “‘Penguin and Pinecone‘ by Salina Yoon.”

6. “Snowman Paul.”
