like eating all the jelly doughnuts.
This book has adorable art of holiday
decorations and children (and, unfortu-
nately, presents), though chances are chil-
dren will spend most of the time enjoy-
ing the things that Biscuit gets into.
Everything works out in the end,
though, when Biscuit delivers his own
present of dog biscuits to his friend, Sam.

Not the same old "CHOICES"

Happening Hanukkah: Creative Ways
to Celebrate by Debra Mostow Zakarin,
with illustrations by Amanda Haley
(Grosset & Dunlap; $5.99).

"Happening' isn't quite the word.
Though it offers one or two origi-
nal ideas,
Happening
Hanukkah doesn't
provide a whole
lot in terms of new
ways to celebrate
the holiday.
The whole prem-
ise of the book is gift
giving ("Let's be honest here," the author
begins. "Wouldn't you agree that giving
and receiving gifts is one of the most fun
parts of Hanukkah?").
The art here is great, but the craft
ideas (a flower vase, tzedakah box, picture
frame) are pretty much old hat. Also
included are recipes for latkes and
instructions on how to play dreidel. In
short: been there, done that.

The Menorah Story with book and illus-
trations by Mark Podwal (Greenwillow;
$5.99).

If you're looking
for the basic story
of Chanukah, this
is it. The text is
simple, and it does
a fine job of telling
why we celebrate
the holiday.
What most families will enjoy isn't the
words, but the illustrations. Podwal has
created beautiful and bold pictures to
accompany the story.
Especially haunting is his dark-blue,
eerie painting showing a soldier atop his
horse.
Although this is recommended for
children ages 4-8, just about anyone can
enjoy it. I I
