Read with 3-year-old child.
This could go either way. Some may find it a bit pricey, but it's a fun read and would make a nice annual "read together" book at Chanukah. It will offer the kids' enjoyment for many years.
S/He was instantly taken with the story (no doubt in part to the rhyming sequence) and asked to read it quite a few nights.
This is a fun story, that is quite descriptive poetically and visually.
The book is a fast read, and individuals of all faiths can enjoy this Hanukkah tale.
