    1. I just love Barbara McClintock's illustrations and here they’re paired with a fun and lovely Hanukkah story. The illustrations aren’t my very favorite by her, but they were appealing, fit the story so well, have an old fashioned feel but feel timeless too.This book is about a miniature Jewish family and they live behind the walls of the famous Eldridge Street Synagogue. In the back inside cover at the illustrator information section, it says that McClintock sat for hours at that synagogue as [...]


    2. Apparently, Kimmel borrowed from The Borrowers and The Littles to create this delightful picture book story about a diminutive family, the Kleins (which means "little" in German), who live behind the walls of an actual synagogue in Manhattan. Their friends are the Littles, the Pequeños ("little" in Spanish) and the Katans ("little" in Hebrew). In this story, Mindy, the Klein daughter, while "borrowing" a Hanukkah candle, is chased by the synagogue cat. Barbara McClintock's detailed paintings de [...]


    3. Well, Chandra, Abigail, and Lisa--I am jumping on the bandwagon with my own enthusiastic review of this charming book! ;-) The illustrations are absolutely delightful, combining my appreciation for McClintock's work with my love of "teeny tiny" houses/people and how all the everyday objects we use like matchboxes and thimbles are given new life as part of the wee folks furnishings. Such a delight! I also appreciate that Mindy is a courageous heroine. This is a treat that I think transcends its h [...]



    4. It's exciting because the cat wants to get them and the cat wants to eat them and when Mindy gets the candle the cat almost gets her, then her zaidy came. Cause they were a little family and that's what makes it exciting. And when Mindy's father came back from trying to get the candle he was hurt by the cat. And that's why I like the story.


    5. It reminds me a lot of The Borrowers, but I love stories about tiny people so that is alright by me. It tells the story of some Jewish little people whose adventure parallels the origin of Hanukkah. It's a unique story for a Hanukkah book.


    6. A cute story about a tiny family who has to overcome a vicious cat in order to get a candle for Hanukkah.
