Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story

by Fran Manushkin

Long ago and far away, the Menashe family was ready to celebrate Hanukkah. But suddenly there came a furious blizzard that covered all the apples and potatoes. And alas, there would be no latkes and applesauce this year. Still, the Menashes celebrated the miracle of Hanukkah with feasting and gladness. And even though food was scarce, they still fed a stray dog and cat that were lost in the storm. But it's the dog and cat who bring with them the miracle of Hanukkah, and in surprising ways, bring latkes and applesauce to the Menashes' home. Combining their talents, Fran Manushkin and Robin Spowart create a harmonious blend of warmth and exuberance that characterizes this joyous festival of lights. The story is followed by an account of the origins and meaning of Hanukkah, a recipe for Latkes, instructions for playing dreidel and suggestions for other books to read about this holiday.
