The Very Best Hanukkah Gift

Author: Joanne Rocklin

The Very Best Hanukkah Gift is about Daniel Bloom who is eight years old, scared of dogs and worried that Hanukkah will be ruined by his mom's weird zucchini latkes and the new dog next door. Adding to his problems is the fact that his lil' sis Amy wants a dog as a Hanukkah gift. Ugh! But, after a few twists and turns, a little Hanukkah miracle turns Daniel's eighth Hanukkah into his best so far. This book is great for people who celebrate Hannukah and for anyone who wants an entertaining way to find out more about this religious holiday. Bonus: There is a recipe for potato latkes at the back of the book!

Merry Christmas from Mandie

Author: Lois Gladys Leppard

This book is part of A Young Mandie Mystery series. Mandie Shaw is a young girl who loves a good mystery. In Merry Christmas from Mandie, Mandie worries about what to get all her friends for Christmas. Then, all of a sudden, presents start showing up on her back door. They're always wrapped in brown paper, with a note addressed to Mandie, but they are never signed. The packages always contain the perfect gift for one or another of her friends. Mandie decides to find out whether there really is an angel in Charley Gap. If you're into mysteries, this holiday read will keep you guessing.

A Fairy Merry Christmas

Author: Gail Herman

Are you into fantasy? Why not spend this Christmas in Fairyland? Well, this trip might be a little depressing - seems Santa isn't giving out gifts this year - to anyone. He doesn't think that the Little Big People (that's you) believe in him anymore. The fairies, with the help of the reindeer, set out on a mission to change Santa's mind and save Christmas for everyone. But, can it be done? Read A Fairy Merry Christmas to find out! This book is the shortest and easiest of the three to read. It contains a few drawings to help you visualize the fairies and Fairyland. If you're an advanced reader, you might wanna pass on this one as the story is a little simple and so is the writing.
