How do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah?

It's so exciting to see The Storybook Shoppe all decorated for the holidays! The front table in the store is set with dozens of books for Christmas, Chanukah, and winter and it's such a delight for children to see. There's a beautiful tree decorated with ornaments, too. It's so festive!

For years I have always been impressed with the selection of holiday books at the store. Miss Nancy and her staff have a large selection of books for Chanukah which is so special for children of the Jewish faith. Today I am sharing a favorite Chanukah themed one, How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague. 

We just love how this book incorporates so many dinosaurs and so many Jewish traditions in a children friendly way. From singing prayers, taking turns with the dreidel, eating up latkes, and giving grandparents kisses, this book shows children how to behave and observe traditions. The monstrous dinosaurs manage to be cute, too! (We love him asleep the most. He almost looks cuddly!)  I love how the book also takes the angle of what "not to do" on the holiday.  Case in point here:
