When Grandpa was a boy growing up in Europe, he celebrated Hanukkah in much the way children do today. He sang songs, played dreidel, and ate potato pancakes. Yet Hanukkah was very different.nbsp;His family could not share the joy of Hanukkah with the world. They were forced to observe the holiday behind locked doors and drawn curtains. In those days, a man came with soldiers to persecute thenbsp;Jews--just as a foreign king had done centuries earlier in Jerusalem. Sheldon Oberman's beautiful story explores the meaning of Hanukkah in a way that enlightens and inspires. Neil Waldman's radiant illustrations capture the message of joy and courage that is the Festival of Lights.
