The symbols of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, are visually represented to stunning effect as young children learn to count from one to eight in three different languages -- English, Hebrew, and Yiddish. Clever die cuts of colorful candles against rich black backgrounds add up one by one with each turn of the page. The significance of the symbols of the holiday -- the menorah, shamash candle, dreidels, the Maccabees, and more -- are explained in a simple retelling of the Hanukkah story. A bold, beautiful introduction to the basics of the holiday, for children of any faith.
