Stone Lamp: Eight Stories of Hanukkah Through History
Karen Hesse (au); Brian Pinkney (il). The story of Hanukkah is the story of the triumph of light over darkness, of the small miracles that give hope to an entire people. In a series of 8 powerful free-verse poems, author Karen Hesse captures this resilient spirit of the Jewish people through the imagined voices of 8 children at Hanukkah. The children -- from Tamara in 12th-century England & Jeremie in 13th-century France to Havva in 17th-century Turkey & Ori in 20th-century Israel -- have all experienced loss & hardship. But they are united by love, family, & their cherished stone lamp. The stone lamp provides each child with comfort & hope -- for every time its wicks are lit, the endurance of the Jewish people is re-illuminated. Illustrations by award-winning artist Brian Pinkney. Ages 9 & up.
