Chanukah starts on Sunday, and what better to read than this delightful tale by Naomi Howland a good deed rewarded by a magical, latke cooking pan. Sadie is given the pan after giving an old woman the firewood she has gathered. If you know the magic words, the pan will cook latkes until you tell it (through a specific phrase) to stop. I picked this up from a Chanukah display at DCPL, and Frances asks for it every few nights. She loves to chant “Latkes, latkes, good to eat, cook me up a Chanukah treat” at the relevant parts. WARNING: This book will make you crave latkes.
