Details: Product Description Dancing Dreidels is a delightful story of Rebecca and her four favorite dreidels, Sheila Shin, Gail Gimmel, Harry Hey, and Neil Nun. Rebecca waits for Hanukkah every year when the family gathers to celebrate. The smells of yummy foods fill the air. Singing, dancing, and the lighting of the menorah take center stage, until it is time for the dreidels to spin for the evening's grand finale. But, Sheila can't stop falling down! Will she be able to 'dance' at the Hanukkah party? Review Dancing Dreidels by Alva Sachs is a heartwarming children's story with educational elements woven throughout it. I loved how the story shows the young reader how with a little help and much perseverance, any obstacle can be overcome. Although her friends encourage her, it is ultimately up to Sheila Shin to succeed. Not only does this book teach wonderful character values, but it also teaches the beautiful tradition of Hanukkah. The back of the book has an excellent resource for those parents that want to teach their children about Hanukkah; as such, it is also a great tool for diversity classes. This is an adorable story that can be shared with the whole family during the Hanukkah season. I would recommend this book to families with young children ages 2-6 --Alyssa Elmore-Readers' Favorite Such joy kept building as I tore through the first reading. Could not stop reading. I had to know what was going to happen next. A great snappy pace. Loved the way you sharply, quickly, hooked the reader into wanting to know more in three lines. Unfolding the characters, Sheila s problems, fantasy embedded in a realistic setting-quite remarkable. Laughed out loud at the names of the guests! Loved, loved, loved them all! I felt fulfilled with gained knowledge as a reader. Nice additional gift from the author. Not a drop of waste of reader's engagement with deepening satisfaction The ending gave a sense of peace and hope. Let's Learn About Hanukkah and the warmth continues. --Ali Widmar- Educator About the Author Alva Sachs, is an award-winning children's author. She holds a Master's Degree in Education.
