This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a family which celebrates Hanukkah and Christmas by lighting lights and other traditions of both holidays.

A recent conversation about the holiday season, in which the importance of lights at this time of year was mentioned, reminded me of this charming picture book about a little girl whose family celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas. When winter approaches, and the world grows dark, Emma knows it will soon be time to take out the family menorah with her father, and decorate the Christmas tree with her mother...

Light the Lights! is a very secular work, and readers should not expect to find an explanation of either holiday here. This is a book about the rituals and traditions of both holidays, and how they are kept by one family. An ideal selection for young children in interfaith families, it emphasizes the warmth and sense of community evoked by both Hanukkah and Christmas, as well as the common theme of light. ( )
