Hanukkah in Alaska is written by Barbara Brown, illustrated by Stacey Schuett and read by Molly Ephraim. Hanukkah in Alaska is unlike anywhere else. Snow piles up over the windows. Daylight is only five hours long. And one girl finds a moose camped out in her backyard, right near her favorite blue swing. She tries everything to lure it away: apples, carrots, even cookies. But it just keeps eating more tree! It’s not until the last night of Hanukkah that a familiar Jewish holiday tradition provides the perfect—and surprising—solution.
