Lots of Latkes

Lots Of Latkes by Sandy Lanton, illustrated by Vicki Jo Redenbaugh  is a Hanukkah story.

From one Momee to another I think this is a great story to share with your family this holiday season. 


Sandy Lanton- ” I chose Latkes for a practical reason. I wanted to write a Hanukkah story.”

“Long ago in a faraway village, an old woman  invites her friends to a Hanukkah dinner. Each guest plans to bring  something to share-sour cream, applesauce, fish, and jelly doughnuts-but  a series of mishaps results in each of them contributing latkes  instead. The friends have a good time anyway, celebrating the holiday  with a dreidel, songs, dancing-and lots of latkes. Cartoon illustrations  in soft colors are appropriate for the lighthearted story. Use this as a  read-aloud in library, family, and Jewish school settings.”
