Happy (C)Han(n)uk(k)a(h) 2018!

November/December 2018 Horn Book MagazineWe all could use some light. And maybe some mindless dreidel spinning. And definitely some chocolate gelt, some sufganiyot, and some latkes. (Hot take: applesauce and sour cream are both the best.) Luckily, Hanukah/Chanukah/Hannukkah/the Festival of Lights begins this Sunday night! And luckily for me, unlike Gertie in this year’s beautiful, cozy All-of-a-Kind Family Hanukkah, I’m old enough to grate and fry the potatoes currently waiting on my kitchen table. (Worry not, though: it all turns out okay for Gertie.)

If you’re celebrating, hope your holiday is bright and warm. And if you need some book recommendations, check out “Holiday High Notes” in our November/December issue (also coming at you in the Horn Book Herald e-newsletter on December 14 — sign up!), click on the tag Hanukkah books, or stay tuned to #25daysofholidaybooks on our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Chag sameach!
