In this cheerful board book, five children light a new candle on their menorah for each night of Hanukkah as they indulge in activities like exchanging gifts, making shadow puppets and reading a story. The text is simple and soothing—"Hanukkah candles, shining bright./ One more candle every night"—while patterns as cozy as a patchwork quilt are featured throughout: the children are dressed in festive floral and plaid prints, and the candles they place on the menorah feature stripes, dots and curlicues. Also available: Christmas Tree. Ages 1–3. (Sept.)

PreS–These attractive board books feature simple, clear concepts and delightful pencil-and-watercolor illustrations enhanced with patterned fabric swatches. Christmas demonstrates the connection between what children might see in nature and ornaments that decorate a Christmas tree such as birds, snowflakes, and stars. Hanukkah celebrates familiar aspects of the holiday such as candle lighting and playing dreidel. In both books, it is the clever illustrations with their sunny colors, charming compositions, and multicultural casts of characters that really shine, making these titles satisfying choices.–Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library
