Our Eight Nights of Hanukkah (kindergarten book club)

Inspired by our cousins and friends who celebrate Hanukkah, we hosted a party to celebrate the Festival of Lights.  With this book in hand, Our Eight Nights of Hanukkah, we gathered together with friends and family for holiday crafts, games, foods, music, and stories.  My Jewish friend who throws the most awesome Hanukkah parties thanked me for helping her child build strong holiday memories.  I hadn't thought of these children's book clubs in that way, but she is so true.  The adventures we share with our children, routine or random, help them build memories for their futures.  We aren't only having a great time, we are also helping our kids them to grow healthy within their childhood community.
