It's a Miracle!: A Hanukkah Storybook

Written by Stephanie Spinner; Illustrated by Jill McElmurry

This is a lovely book about a boy and his family as they celebrate Hanukkah. For the first time, Owen is the OCL—Official Candle Lighter—for his family’s menorah. During the eight nights of Hanukkah, his grandmother tells Owen a bedtime story. Each story is about a member of their family, and each story highlights a theme celebrated in Hanukkah, family, overcoming adversity, and miracles.
