The Magic Dreidels

Written by Eric Kimmel • Illustrated by Katya Krenina

Reviewed by Bryan L. (age 7)

Jacob goes to a well to fetch water. He dropped his dreidel into the well. A wizard came out of the well and gave Jacob a new dreidel that made latkes. Jacob?s aunt switches the dreidel for a regular dreidel. Jacob goes back to the wizard who gives him another dreidel which spins out gelt.

This book taught me that it is not good to steal. It taught me that is you take something from someone without permission then something bad will happen to you I liked the book because it is about celebrations. I learned a little bit about Hannakah.

I would recommend this book to someone who wants to learn about dreidels. Kid?s who like fantasy stories about wizards would also like this book.
