    How nice it is to read a holiday story that doesn’t involve the giving and receiving of gifts! Gran, along with Gramps and Uncle Steve, did try to receive a special kind of gift, one of awareness of the existence of a sought after situation, but the exchange of gifts had nothing whatsoever to do with this lovely holiday story. Worth reading for that alone!

    Gran was so determined. With Christmas all about her she wanted to see Hanukkah in the worst way. I’ve shared that sentiment when I’ve traveled, too—particularly when my son was little. Both to experience the familiarity of our own holiday alongside the pleasures of Christmas, and also to see how it’s interpreted in another culture—always a treat. Also, I applaud the idea that a holiday isn’t just about gift giving. Finally, I loved the art here: a delightful combination of simplicity, whimsy, and sophistication.

    This review was written by my daughter who is in 3rd grade: I think this book is good because it shows what great adventures the family had and what fun times they enjoyed together. This is a nice holiday book because it shows how the Christmas items made it like Chanukah. For example, the Christmas carols sounded like the Dreidel song to Gran. In my opinion, kids six and over would love reading this book. Plus, adults will like reading it too!

    The present day streets of Frankfurt Germany are the setting for this “had to be told” holiday story. Young children of today probably know little to nothing of what transpired over half century ago during World War II. But it’s important for us to keep that story alive. And this book, in its own way, helps us to do just that A beautifully illustrated and well-told story of a family’s search for signs that Judaism somehow survived in this major German city is ironically set in a Christmas Fair in Frankfurt. With Christmas all about them, the family begins to seek a connection to their culture and history. Their attempts for the most part are with unsuccessful, until they take an alternate route home. A story for adults and children alike. Parents are encouraged to use this as a read-aloud with discussion. A great holiday gift for people of all faiths.
