My Two Holidays: A Hanukkah and Christmas StoryBy Daria
Written by Danielle Novack, Illustrated By Phyllis Harris
Sometimes it’s easy to feel nervous when other children are sharing their stories of celebrating Christmas OR Hanukkah. Sammy isn’t sure what to say because his family celebrates both. This sweet book, written by a clinical psychologist, shares what it’s like to have a family with two sets of holiday traditions, both of which are loved, enjoyed and respected.
As there are more and more families that blend two (or more) faiths, this type of book is a wonderful way to talk about holiday traditions as well as respect, tolerance and the beauty of sharing our treasured beliefs with the world.
