The Trees of the Dancing Goats

By

Written and Illustrated By Patricia Polacco

Trishia’s family lives in a rural area and loves getting ready for Hanukkah.  There’s food to cook, presents to make and so much more.  And when Trisha visits her neighbors who should be getting ready to celebrate Christmas – she finds that they are all sick and can’t get out of bed.  Her neighbors have scarlet fever and it looks like the holidays will not come to their house at all.  In this beautiful tale, friendship and the spirit of giving truly saves the day, leaving both families in awe of holiday miracles.

Based on a childhood memory from author and illustrator, Patricia Polacco, this book is a perfect read-aloud and poses a wonderful question – what can you do for your neighbors or your community this holiday season?
