“Religion”
I knew nothing about Hanukkah but now I know. It is a good book and it gave me information about Jews and their religion. So if you are interested in religion then you should read it😉.

I knew nothing about Hanukkah, but this book has told me everything!I love the recipes and games. All those interested in festivals should read this book.
