  • Hanukkah Bear

    By Eric A. Kimmel

    Illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka

    Read by Laural Merlington

    When a bear arrives at her door, Bubba Branya mistakes him for her rabbi. Together they celebrate!

    "Kimmel has pared down his The Chanukkah Guest (Holiday House, 1990) to create this new, reillustrated version for younger readers. Though a bit of the rich language is gone from this much-loved story about 97-year-old Bubba Brayna mistaking a latke-seeking bear for her rabbi, the essence and the humor remain...the new acrylic paintings by Wohnoutka have a warm, mirthful quality...Successful on every level, this holiday favorite is sure to be popular with anyone who appreciates a little humor with their holidays." - School Library Journal
