The light from a menorah takes a young boy on a fantastical journey around the world to experience different festivals of light, and the people who celebrate them.
Illustrator Andrea Blinick’s luminous mixed-media art creates a dazzling world filled with sparkling light and warmth, while Robin Heald’s beautiful free-verse text evokes the quiet wonder of a holiday night. An author’s note offers further information about Hanukkah, Diwali, Christmas, Kwanzaa, St. Lucia Day, and Loy Krathong.

“The Light From My Menorah, is a new book by Robin Heald, which lyrically emphasizes not only the light of her menorah, but how our world is filled with light, traveling from day into night and back again…as well as into the worship or celebration of other religions and countries.”—Jane Yolen, author of  Owl Moon, the How Do Dinosaur picture books, and 400+ other books

“The Light from My Menorah: Celebrating Holidays Around the World” by Robin Heald and Andrea Blinick is a beautifully illustrated tale about how the light from a Chanukah menorah lights up the night, travels through space, and sweeps across the desert and other parts of the world. There are many holidays in different cultures and religions that capture the beauty of light, from Diwali to Christmas to Kwanzaa, St. Lucia Day, and Loy Krathong, among others.

Light travels far, it travels fast, and it travels to many spots, but the beauty of light is within each and every person, no matter their means of celebration.
