  • What a great book with beautiful illustrations!
    A little girl named Alexandra tells the story of the first Hanukkah from her side as she lived through it. This is a children’s book but it had my husband, myself and our girls (10 and 6) hooked to every word. She writes down some of the horrors that’s happened during that time, which I appreciate because she isn’t hiding what truly happened. This is a must have to read for Hanukkah or even to help teach kids about Hanukkah and the importance of it.

  • We purchased this book to read during Hanukkah for our children. We read through it and really enjoyed it. The book tells all about how the Greeks overran the Temple and tells the story and resulting time of fleeing Jerusalem from the perspective of one young girl and her family. Highly recommend this book.

  • Wonderful historical tale to share with all ages!

  • This was our first year celebrating Hanukkah. The illustrations and quality of materials are excellent. While we enjoyed the story in the book, and it seemed to have accurate details of the Hanukkah story, we found the writing a bit simplistic. The author uses a lot of "he said, she said, they said, I said" and short, choppy sentences. We liked that the story was from a girl's perspective, as we have four daughters, but the author seemed to give the mother too much authority in the home. According to our understanding of the Jewish culture, this would not be the case at all. However, despite these annoyances, we enjoyed the story and enjoyed having it be a part of our Hanukkah celebration.

  • Told from a young girl's point of view, this gorgeous book describes how the first Hanukkah came to be. There are details about using a reed pen and writing on papyrus that add historical accuracy to the vivid story. Best for ages 9 and up but smaller excerpts could be adapted for younger children.

  • my kids loved it and it filled a gap for the holidays for story time
