10 Hanukkah Books For Kids

10 Hanukkah Books for Kids |

My husband and I have always talked about how to teach the twins about Hanukkah. Obviously, being 6 months old they are a little young to quite get it, but I want to be prepared for when they start talking and asking questions. I love nothing more than the Friends episode featuring the Holiday Armadillo, but thought that again, they’d be a little too young to get the humor in that, so we opted to purchase some Hanukkah books for kids until they’re a little bit older and share in my love of Friends.

These Hanukkah books for kids all discuss the meaning of Hanukkah, but in a fun and cute way that little ones can understand.

Latke, The Lucky Dog

by Ellen Fischer

Latke, The Lucky Dog

Synopsis: Rescued from an animal shelter on the first night of Hanukkah, Latke the puppy joins the family just in time for the celebrations. Although he has trouble learning the house rules, he is one Lucky Dog!

Elmo’s Little Dreidel

by Naomi Kleinberg

lmo's Little Dreidel

Synopsis: What’s a dreidel? Elmo wants to know! He finds out as he celebrates the first night of Hanukkah with a friend’s family. He watches Gil, Susie, and their parents light the menorah and joins in as they sing Hanukkah songs. After supper he learns to play dreidel, the traditional Hanukkah spin-the-top game. And, at the end of the evening, Elmo gets his first Hanukkah gift—his very own little dreidel! This sturdy board book introduces toddlers to the traditions of the Jewish Festival of Lights and even teaches them how to play dreidel themselves!

I’m bundled up in front of the fire enjoying the holidays, and I hope you all are too! Since I don’t have to work or do much of anything today, I thought it would be a great time to show you my favorite Etsy Christmas finds.

If your order now, most of these items will still be able to reach you before December 25, but be sure to check each individual vendor’s holiday ship-by dates.

Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal Shirt

I can’t say Merry Christmas without wanting to follow it up by adding, “ya filthy animal!” This shirt from Jones Co Creations ($23.29) is super cute, but there’s no shortage of shirts and accessories sporting this popular phrase!

Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal Onesie

Case in point.. Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animals Onesies from Aubrey Bills Boutique ($13). What’s not to love about these?!

Christmas Stamp

I think this Christmas Stamp from Letter and Adore ($18) would be adorable for stamping the outside of Christmas card envelopes!. Of course, I think about this now… after all of my cards have been mailed out already. Sigh. Remind me to do this next year, OK?! With the cards already gone, however, I do love this idea of using the stamp to make DIY holiday tags!

12 Thanksgiving Books Kids are Sure to Love

We make it a point to read the twins a story every day and we love picking up books to go with each holiday. They can learn young and we can have fun with it. With Thanksgiving just over three weeks away, it’s time to add a few Thanksgiving stories to our collection. We will be able to read them now and then pull them out year-after-year… although it won’t be that long until the twins are reading the books to US! Oy.

Do you have your own kiddos who love to read, or are you perhaps a fan of gifting books to your favorite littles? If so, we found 10 Thanksgiving books for kids that are sure to be a hit.

There was an old lady who swallowed a turkey

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey

by Lucille Colandro

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly is one of our favorite stories to read and this looks like a fun holiday remake of the classic! In this version, the old lady swallows things like a hat, a balloon, a boat and more!


Turkey Trouble

Turkey Trouble

by Wendi Silvano

Synopsis: Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving . . . and you’re the main course. But Turkey has an idea–what if he doesn’t look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!


The First Thanksgiving

The First Thanksgiving: A Lift-the-Flap Book

by Nancy Davis

Our kids absolutely love lift-the-flap books, and this one looks like a fun way to learn more about the meaning behind Thanksgiving!

Synopsis: Nancy Davis recreates the excitement and wonder of the first Thanksgiving–how the pilgrims came to America and how the Native Americans taught them to plant and then joined them in a Thanksgiving feast. Parents can use the simple text and the bright, graphic illustrations of this lift-the-flap book to introduce a very young child to this holiday.
