Daddy Christmas & Hanukkah Mama by Selina Alko

Jewish holidays and Christian holidays are different.  The author does a nice job of showing how the different holiday traditions can be combined.

Knopf Books sent me a copy of this picture book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Sadie is growing up in a household where two religious beliefs are celebrated without discrimination.  While this is a compromise, it's in no way giving up any beliefs.  It's incorporating them and celebrating them both.  

The illustrations are colorful and full of activity.  It's easy to get caught up in the spirit at Sadie's house.  You can even learn about a religion you may not have been familiar with before.  Learning new things is an important part of life.  Why don't you stop for a visit?

Happy reading.
