HAPPY LLAMAKKAH! is a simple and joyous celebration of Hanukkah! The book features a rhyming poem with some key features of the holiday and plenty of adorable llamas celebrating. This is a charming and festive read that brings this holiday to young readers, including frying latkes, chocolate gelt, and singing.

What I loved: The book is beautifully illustrated with plenty of fun llamas on every page. The text is brief, making it great for short attention spans, and the rhyming nature of the poem makes it fun to read and listen to. The holiday is really celebrated in a fun way, and it is great to see holiday books about Hanukkah. The back matter also includes extra details about the holiday that make this an educational read for those not already familiar with the holiday.

Final verdict: A delightful and joyous read about Hanukkah, HAPPY LLAMAKKAH! is a charming picture book that will appeal to young readers of many ages with its short and rhyming text, adorable llama family, and educational back matter.
