While fourteen million Jews will celebrate Hanukkah this Dec., it represents just 0.2% of the population. However, Florida educator Jean Fox is on a mission to put Hanukkah front-and-center in the minds of children across the continent, with her impressive new children’s book. “What is Hanukkah?” not only introduces young readers to the customs of this lively holiday, but helps children grow into individuals who will exercise lifelong understanding and tolerance for all cultures and religions. Through simple text, fun drawings and stunning photographs, the bilingual English-Spanish book gives children an exciting opportunity to explore a belief system and way of life that is radically different to their own.
This book has been created in both, English and Spanish, especially for teachers who want to enlighten their students about other cultures. Tolerance is a trait that all people, young and old, need to embrace. With tolerance comes understanding. With understanding, comes peace.
