The Dreidel That Wouldn’t Spin
A Toyshop Tale of Hanukkah
Release Date: OCTOBER 2014
Some of my favorite stories are ones that will teach my boys how to appreciate things and people. This story is a tale for a greedy shopkeeper who thrives on the dollars he can make off his customers. When a peddler gives him a large and beautifully decorated dreidel in good spirits, the shop keeper threw a high price tag on it in hopes to make money off this item. His greed instead of grasping the real meaning of Hanukkah. So many appreciated it and wanted it as sentiment, but the shop keeper wanted money. What happens as this dreidel shows it has more value that beauty or fortune? Will it spin for everyone or does it belong with someone who has a warm heart and really defines the true joy of Hannukah?
This is a great Holiday story that also includes an Appendix that teaches about Hannukah, the meaning of the Dreidel and instructions on how to play the Dreidel game. Great if you want to share the joy of Hannukah in your home or teach your child how other children celebrate the Holidays different than they do. We celebrate Christmas and loved this chance to share this with my 6 year old and teach him how other kids celebrate their own Holiday. He really had no clue-at his age he assumes every child has his same Holiday experiences. This was a great lesson for his age and we learned a lot.
