Unfortunately this book appears to be out of print.

    I liked this new Chanukah story -- bonus: an introduction to Rosh Chodesh and nature photography! An interesting story time companion to Eve Bunting's Night Tree.Many thanks to my local public library for getting it.

    Great read aloud for many ages. Gives backgroung information to a point. Tells a different side of Hanukkah that many students never hear.
