What It Is
Hannah the Hanukkah Hero is a doll and book celebrating the Jewish Holiday of Hanukkah from the makers of Mensch on a Bench. The book, written by Neal Hoffman, tells a story involving Hanukkah and the battle versus the Greeks while obtaining more oil as they had only enough for one night. The story also teaches the qualities Hannah needs to become a hero: Kindness, Courage, Intelligence, and Strength. The Hannah Doll is a soft plush doll with a slingshot and soft shield of armor with a Jewish star on it.
Is It Fun?
The book is a new story that parents can share with their kids about Hanukkah. The doll is cute and soft. It makes a great companion while reading the story, for play, or for bedtime.
Who It’s For
This book is for all families interested in the stories and traditions surrounding the holiday of Hanukkah.
What To Be Aware Of
One disappointing aspect is that the outfit Hannah is wearing in the book isn't the same outfit on the Hannah Doll. Kids will want the Hannah Doll dressed like she is throughout the book, but this outfit is different.
