    1. Today is the first day of Chanukah and I would like to share a book that I have always liked. Sadie and her four younger brothers Herschel, Hillel, Hayim and baby Max have been left home alone while their mama is taking care of their Aunt Rose. Living on the outskirts of a small village, the family is very poor and always hungry.It's very cold on the first night of Chanukah, but when Sadie asks each of the older boys to go and collect some wood for a fire, they all refuse to help out, Sadie head [...]


    2. This is a folk tale about a family living in a small house in a cold village. One day the oldest child is out looking for fire wood when she comes across an old lady who also needs fire wood. The child gives the old lady the firewood. As a thank you, the old lady gives the child a frying pan that has magical powers to make bottomless latkes. They end up making too many and share the rest with the village folks. The book had a cute story line and good illustrations, but it wasn't my favorite book [...]


    3. latkes, Latkes Good to Eat is a Chanukah story. in this story, a poor girl does a kind thing for an old woman and is given a magic pan that will fry up latkes. Her brothers overhear the secret words to start the magic pan but not how to stop it. This is a wonderful depiction of a classic fairy tale with a Jewish setting. It has Jewish traditions and includes a recipe for latkes and the origins of Chanukah.


    4. Here, a magic skillet makes luscious latkes when the right person says the magical words. As in Tomi dePaola's Strega Nona and the spaghetti pot, sometimes things can go wrong, creating a problem that will make young readers giggle.


    5. We read this as part of our winter holidays unit study. The story was cute but very similar to Strega Nona so we had an idea where it was going. The ending was different though & we enjoyed it.



    6. This is a fun tale about a magical frying pan that makes delicious latkes. It reminds us greatly of the story Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola. It has the same storyline and the same inevitable cooking chaos and comic result. Our girls really enjoyed this story and we want to try the recipe for latkes that is included at the end of the story (see below.) There is also a note at the end that explains Chanukah and why latkes are a part of the holiday celebration.Sadie's LatkesThis recipe makes about a [...]


    7. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I’ve got latkes in my tummy what a delicious humorous story written by Naomi Howland. The story teaches a valuable lesson of being kind to others, charity, generosity, and receiving the same in return. It is about a girl named Sadie and her four younger brothers who are quite poor and always hungry. While out in the woods gathering fire wood for their stove at home, Sadie is approached by a little old woman. Sadie feels empathy for her and gives her the firewood she had [...]


    8. This was a very cute, unique story about Chanukah. It followed a family and their special Chanukah season one year. The author used very simple, descriptive words that kept the reader engaged for the whole book. It was a relatable story too. Even though not everyone celebrates Chanukah, any reader could get something out of this book. The illustrations definitely helped bring the story to life. There were some parts that I probably wouldn't have been able to understand just because I've never pr [...]


    9. This book is about a girl named Sadie. She has four brothers and they are always hungry. One day she goes into the woods and gathers some fire wood. There she sees an old woman who she gives her fire wood to. In return the old lady gives her a magical pan. If she whispers the secret to the pot it will cook until she tells it the secret way to stop. One day her brother hears what she says to start it but he cannot make it stop. Eventually Sadie gets home and stops it and no one is hungry at Chanu [...]


    10. This book is about a young girl, Sadie, and her four younger brother. They were very poor and she had a hard time feeding them. She went out to search for fire wood one cold frigid night and ran into an old lady. The lady needed firewood and Sadie graciously gave it to her. In return, this lady gave her a frying pan that had magic to it. Well Sadie went back home to her brother and cooked plenty for them with the pan. A few days later Sadie goes on a search to find the lady and invite her to her [...]


    11. This Chanukah book portrays the importance of "Mitzvot," charity and generosity in the Jewish religion. It also reveals the negativity associated with greed in a humorous and fun way for young children. The illustrations in this picture book introduce foods and traditions associated with the Jewish religion as a whole, as well as foods and traditions solely related to Chanukah.


    12. This story reminds me of many of the Grimm fairy tales. Sadie takes care of her brothers while her mother is away. She comes upon a cold, old woman while gathering firewood. The woman gives her a magic pan in return for her kindness. All goes well until the boys have a little trouble stopping the magic pan!


    13. This picture book is reminiscent of a Hans Christian Andersen tale involving porridge, but with a holiday twist. The concept is decent, but somewhere the storytelling and use of language falls flat for me, and has since I first read the book as a child.


    14. Love this book!It takes the traditional tale played with elsewhere (Strega Nona for example)and brings to it a magic frying pan that makes latkes.Fun to read aloud. language. Satisying story and illustrations.


    15. I wonder if Hershcel, Hillel, Hayim and Max were invited to the Chanukah party that their mischief helped to create? (I also wonder if they learned their lessons and stayed true to their promisesterall, they gave their word once and failed to behave.)


    16. I used this book in a text set last semester. I really liked it, because it has a lot of culture within the story. If I was using this book in my class I would emphasize the food and place they lived in the story. This is a great mulitcultral book to have as a social studies lesson.


    17. This book is not about Chanukah or God at all. It's like Strega Nona meets a fairy tale, although it involves a traditional Jewish food (produced by magic, and not God's power). I was hoping to expose my kids to the basics of Chanukah, but this doesn't do that at all.


    18. We love this book. I've just learned it is a retelling of a classic story - porridge, etc. (I've never read Stregna Nona which is also.) Anyway - this one is just charming and we LOVE latkes so even better. We read it every Chanukah and use the recipe to make the latkes too.





    19. Lively, colorful illustrations and delightful text makes this a fun book to read and share. Great moral of what happens when the brothers get greedy.



    20. I LOVE this book…of all my kids' Hanukah books, this has to be the best. Great fairy tale, catchy writing, concise. I highly recommend


    21. Wonderful story celebrating Chanukah with a Russian Jewish version of the magic pot. Pretty, expressive illustrationsemes: Chanukah, food, frying pan, latkes


    22. One of my favorite Hanukkah books to read for grades preschool - 2, about a magic pan that makes latkes but goes out of control when the wrong people try to use it.
