My Two Holidays A Hanukkah and Christmas Story - Danielle Novack and Phyllis Harris

My Two Holidays

ISBN 9780545235150

Sam is preparing for the holidays, decorating his Christmas tree and polishing his Menorah. But at school as child after child shares their story about their holiday tradition, Sam becomes confused and embarrassed, because all the other children only have one holiday and he has two. That night he shares what happened to with his mother, and she explains that his family celebrates two traditions. The next day at school Sam shares about having two traditions and the other kids think that is cool.

The book is wonderfully written and charmingly illustrated. It presents both traditions with respect and appreciation. It will be a good book to help your children understand another tradition or maybe their own mixed traditions.
