In the basement of our building in DC, by the recycling bins, there's a shelf for old books. This was on it last night. Naturally, I had to take a look, and it seems I was the first person to open it; the spine crackled on every page.
It looks like DK's other "My First" series, but it's got a lot of narrative, the Hanukkah story, re-enacted by older kids (7-8) in bathrobes. The last half, though, gets back to the "how many red dreidls are there?" and "Hanukkah shapes ["Oval/Jelly Donut"] format. No pressure and all, but there's an honest to G-d Hanukkah quiz, at the end. All in all, it seems a little ambitious for the typical "My First Boardbook" audience.
My guess: it was a stocking stuffer for someone who started dating a Jewish girl. Because if you're really buying for a kid, wouldn't you start with the Fisher Price Little People Hanukkah Play Set?
