Dinosaur on Hanukkah

New Review

Menorahs, latkes, and dreidels are all part of Hanukkah. As part of a celebration of the holiday, class members listen to the tale of a decidedly devious dinosaur that causes a fuss playing with candles, dreidels, and latkes. Youngsters then join the fun by constructing their own menorah.
