Here is the second title in a delightful new pre-school series.
Eight Candles to Light looks at Chanukah, the Jewish festival of light (20th-27th December 2003).
The other titles in the series look at Rosh Hashanah, Purim and Passover.
Each book focuses on the way the festival is celebrated today, with bright, charming illustrations of a family taking part.
The text is very simple, and has a warmth and lyricism which chimes in with the spirit of the celebrations.
A double page spread at the end gives more detailed historical and cultural information about each festival, for parents and teachers.
