Hanukkah Bear

— feeling grin
Hanukkah Bear - Eric A. Kimmel

Hanukkah Bear is an adorable story about old Bubba Brayna, who accidentally hosts a night of Hanukkah for a bear. It is incredibly silly and gives a taste of what Hanukkah is like. 

This book received a AD370L on the Lexile scale, and would be most appropriate for fourth graders and up. This book would be a great way to introduce a class discussion about celebrations from other cultures. The recipe at the end is a nice touch, and would be fun to share with a class. The book itself is silly and fun and would make a great addition to a class library..
