Hanukkah is an important celebration in the Jewish calendar. It lasts eight days, from the 25th day of Kislev to the 2nd or 3rd day of Tevet. Like any other festivities, the Jewish people have a good selection of symbols attached to Hanukkah: the menorah (an elaborate candelabra that helps mark off the days of Hanukkah by lighting a new candle each night), the candles, and the dreidel (a unique spinning top). There are even special foods associated with Hanukkah, treats like special chocolate Hanukkah coins, donuts and so much more. And then there are the special songs and, of course, gifts. What fun! Hanukkah is a perfect reason to give young readers another avenue of learning: numbers, letters, words and so much more. Coloring the images, then tracing and coloring the numbers and words is a great way to have fun and expand one’s learning of the numbers and letters, as well as learning the traditions and symbols of a very special time of year.
Ronit Gizel Shaltiel has created a wonderful coloring book for Hanukkah. Hanukkah Activity Book is a super activity book full of lots of things to do to entertain young minds while they celebrate and learn about this very special time in the Jewish calendar. Each page has another Hanukkah image to draw, complete with its word. On the pages that illustrate the menorah, there are eight menorahs, each with one more candle lit and a new number for the child to learn how to trace. The child learns both the word and the number illustrated in the line drawing and has the opportunity to color the image as well as the word and the number. This is an excellent learning tool to accompany the excitement of Hanukkah in an educational exercise.
