Marin Mommies presents a guest article by Marin children's librarian Lisa Katz, who highlights some fantastic Hanukkah books for kids.
While we are resting our bellies from a grateful evening of our delicious Thanksgiving meals, we now have to quickly switch gears and prepare for Hanukkah. With only a short time until the first candle is lit on the menorah (Saturday, December 8th), we must get ready for our holiday treats. It is time to get out those dreidels, chocolate gelt, menorahs and candles. Here are some fabulous Hanukah books to share with your family and friends. They make for some great presents too!
I have put asterisks next some wonderful stories for children who celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas in their homes. I have also included a short poetry list as well as the PJ library list.
There's still plenty of time to order your family's personalized holiday photo cards. Cardstore.com, an online store where you can create your own custom photo cards and invitations, is offering Marin Mommies readers 20% off their total purchase with the coupon code NEWCS. This coupon code can be used as many times as you want, in case you need to re-order cards (I don't know about you, but we never seem to order enough and end up rationing the things like they were printed on gold foil or something).
We haven't used them yet, but they've been around since 1999 (forever in InterWeb years, so they're probably doing something right) and offer plenty of really spiffy looking cards. Here's the link: www.cardstore.com
