Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama

A delightful holiday offering no matter what you celebrate in December!I am a mix of two traditions. From Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama. How lucky am I? Holiday time at Sadie's house means golden gelt sparkling under the Christmas tree, candy canes hanging on eight menorah branches, voices uniting to sing carols about Macabees and the manger, and latkes on the mantel awaiting Santa's arrival. Selina Alko's joyous celebration of blended families will make the perfect holiday gift for the many Americans who celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.

About the Author

SELINA ALKO is the acclaimed author-illustrator of Every-Day Dress-Up, I'm Your Peanut Butter Big Brother, and B Is for Brooklyn. She is also the illustrator of the beloved My Subway Ride and My Taxi Ride. Selina lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their two children.


K-Gr 4-Sadie is one lucky kid-her Christian father and Jewish mother create a holiday mash-up with elements of both Christmas and Hanukkah tossed about with gay abandon. They scatter gelt under the tree and have a menorah hung with candy canes, Santa's treat is potato latkes, and they "carol to the neighbors about Maccabees and the manger." The extended families willingly participate in the combined holiday feast and listen to tales from both traditions. The gouache, collage, and colored-pencil illustrations are a lively addition to the cheerful holiday chaos. Alko includes a recipe for cranberry kugel dressing. This is not in any way a typical holiday celebration, but it certainly is a joyful one. Perfect for a multicultural holiday program.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2012.
