It's a Miracle!
An Anne Schwartz Book: Atheneum Books for Young Readers
Named a Notable Book for Young Readers by the Association of Jewish Libraries.
Every night of Hanukkah, after Owen - the Official Candle Lighter - lights the menorah, Grandma Karen kicks off her cowboy boots and tells him a bedtime story. Join Owen in discovering how each of these stories is also a celebration of his own heritage in this heartwarming book about faith, family, and the miracle of Hanukkah.
Spinner conjures modern characters happy to celebrate the heritage they share both as Jews and as members of the same family, and her light touch virtually promises that readers of many faiths will be glad of a seat at Owen's table. — Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
