Hanukkah Haiku - A Joyous Book

By December 3, 2013

Follow me on:

Cover art of the children's book Hanukkah HaikuI can't say I have ever thought of Hanukkah and the poetic form haiku together, but in the case of the children's Hanukkah book Hanukkah Haiku, the combination works well. With haiku poetry by Harriet Ziefert, plus joyous and colorful paintings by Karla Gudeon, Hanukkah Haiku tells the story of a family's Hanukkah activities and celebration. I recommend it for 3 to 6 year olds. See my annotated list for additional recommended children's books about Hanukkah and my December Calendar of Children's Books for more books for the holiday season.
