Description: For over twenty-five years, thousands of Jewish children around the country have been writing Hanukkah letters addressed to "Bubbie and Zadie"--Yiddish for "Grandma" and "Grandpa"--all because of Daniel Halevi Bloom's special Hanukkah tale. Now, Square One is proud to make this classic story available in a new and brilliantly illustrated holiday edition.
As told in this charming folktale, on the first night of Hanukkah, the magical Bubbie and Zadie visit all Jewish children in their homes. There, they tell wonderful stories, listen to the children's own stories, share wise advice, and--most important--give the children love. How do they travel to so many homes in one night? Nobody knows. But every Hanukkah, Bubbie and Zadie bring joy into the lives of all Jewish children, instilling the Hanukkah spirit.
Here, then, is the perfect book for the first night of Hanukkah--a visit from two loving and wonderfully magical people. Whether read by a child, by a parent to a child, or by a grandparent to a grandchild, Bubbie and Zadie warms the heart and brings even greater meaning to the Festival of Lights. Now, the special place that grandparents hold in children's lives can be celebrated along with the miracle of Hanukkah.
