The Miracle Jar : a Hanukkah Story



By Audrey Penn of the “Kissing Hand” books,
Illustrated by Lea Lyon, Tanglewood Publishers,

Sophie and her brother are looking forward to Hanukkah with its twinkling candles and fried treats each night. But there is only a small amount of cooking oil left in the jar. The family is snowed in at their cozy cottage, so can’t get more. Will they be able to figure out a way to make the cooking oil last for all the eight nights of Hanukkah? Can they make it a “miracle jar”?
