The Hanukkah Puzzle Book
A Book in 8 parts....for 8 Days of Fun!

written and designed by Ellen G. K. Rubin, The Popuplady

Hanukkah is more fun than ever with THE HANUKKAH PUZZLE BOOK!
Eight separate, full color board books for each of the holiday nights forms a puzzle to help young children learn all about Hanukkah, from the miracle of the oil to how to light the menorah. The books are nestled in an illustrated tray and re-sealable cellophane bag for easy storage allowing for years of holiday fun.

In addition to the Hanukkah story, the books answer the age-old questions, In which direction do we properly set and light the menorah candles? and What are the rules of the dreidel game? The back of each book lights a candle (1-8) in the menorah so that even pre-schoolers can put the puzzle together as they follow the holiday’s progression and learn to count. Young children [2-7] love that each book fits into their hand.

There is a limited supply of The Hanukkah Puzzle Book. Order by November 24 and receive in time for Hanukkah.

Signed or inscribed by the author on request. $8 + $4 SH. Foreign purchases or special delivery options extra. PayPal only accepted. [PayPal account:] To order:
