    This is a lovely picture book that helps explain to young readers the holidays of Hanukkah and Christmas Understanding the way different cultures and religions celebrate important holidays is a great way to start building relationship Tommy and his family who celebrate Christmas is invited over to Sophie's house for a Hanukkah party When he arrives he learns about the holiday and enjoys the food and spinning the dreidel But he's confused when he sees their Christmas tree Sophie explains that her father is a Christian and her mother is Jewish so the family celebrates both holidays This book would be a good way to compare and contrast the two holidays
