What's a dreidel? Elmo wants to know! He finds out as he celebrates the first night of Hanukkah with a friend's family. He watches Gil, Susie and their parents light the menorah and joins in as they sing Hanukkah songs. After supper, he learns to play dreidel, the traditional Hanukkah spin-the-top game, which becomes the heart of this sweet little story. And at the end of the evening, Elmo gets his first Hanukkah gift—his very own little dreidel! This sturdy board book introduces little ones to a few of the traditions of the Jewish Festival of Lights. And they'll even learn how to play dreidel!
