Sammy's First Hanukkah not only introduces preschoolers to Hanukkah in a way that is right on their level, it also reviews numbers and colors as well. A perfect book for the holidays.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for counting and colour 14 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a nice book and the children enjoyed it, I would have liked a bit more about how you celebrate Hannukah or what a dreidl is, exactly, but it is good for pre schoolers learning about colour and number.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful first book about Hanukkah 23 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is an ideal choice for very young children, as it portrays a fun and interesting view of Hanukkah that is very much in keeping with a small child's own perceptions of the holiday, namely, candle lighting, dreidel playing and latke eating. The story is simply told and the illustrations are colorful and reminiscent of Eric Carle's work. It is a quick reading book that my two and half year old enjoyed a great deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good source 14 Nov 2007
By Reader Views - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Reviewed by Leslie Granier and Nicholas Lopez (age 5) for Reader Views (10/07)

Sammy Spider and his mother live on the ceiling of the Shapiro family's house. On the first night of Hanukkah, the Shapiros light one candle in the menorah and their son Josh is given a dreidel to spin. Sammy likes to warm his cold feet by the candles. He also enjoys watching the dreidel spin and asks his mother for one of his own. His mother tells him that spiders spin webs, not dreidels. Each consecutive night an additional candle is lit and Josh is given a different colored dreidel. Sammy keeps asking his mother for a dreidel but gets the same response. At the end of Hanukkah, Sammy is sad because he still has no dreidel of his own. His mother presents him with a clever gift - eight different colored socks (the same colors as the dreidels Josh received) each with a little dreidel spun on the end.

Nicholas had no trouble recognizing the colors (except rose because it appeared to be the same color as brown) and liked seeing the names of the colors so he could learn how to spell them. He thought it was funny that Sammy could wear eight socks that were all different colors and was happy his feet would not be cold anymore. He was also happy that Sammy finally got the dreidel that he wanted. He was not thrilled with the illustrations of the Shapiro family's faces. (They were a little abstract).

"Sammy Spider's First Hanukkah" is a good source for teaching young children about colors and numbers and at the same time explaining certain Jewish traditions.

2.0 out of 5 stars UnOrthodox Spider 4 Oct 2012
By Shaya - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Kosher consumer should be both aware and wary. Sammy actively does things with the Menorah which are not permitted according to Jewish Law. As is said in the prayer " Haneiros Hallalu", these candles are Holy and we do not have permission to use them for our own benefit. For the Orthodox consumer, these details ae significant !.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good for younger children 6 Jan 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If your little one is learning colors and counting this book has lots of repetition. My two year old liked it and my five year old liked it the first two times but didn't want to read it anymore after that.
