Book Review: ‘Hanukkah in Alaska’


Backyard tree-eating moose, piles of snow and limited daylight can’t get the main character down in Barbara Brown’s “Hanukkah in Alaska.

Brown’s story demonstrates the all-too-relatable woes of winter in Alaska, and just when the main character thinks that nothing – not even Hanukkah – can cheer her up, her father brings her outside for Alaska’s own version of the festival of lights – the aurora borealis! She’s able to lure the moose away from the yard using traditional Hanukkah latkes.

A beautiful tale of tradition, “Hanukkah in Alaska” – beautifully illustrated by Stacey Schuett – truly exposes the uniqueness of Alaska.
