This perennial classic tells the tender story of a young Jewish girl at Christmastime. Robin loves Christmas trees but knows Jews do not celebrate Christmas. One day at school, another Jewish girl tells her about a wonderful new invention called a ‘Chanukah Bush.’ “It’s like a Christmas tree,” explains schoolmate Sandy Goldstein, “but it’s for Jews.” Robin rushes home to tell her family the great news.

The story unfolds in warm, loving chapters which examine the yearly “Christmas Dilemma” faced by many children in this country who are born to diverse cultures and beliefs. In CHANUKAH BUSH, Robin’s wise grandfather explains the difference between celebrating something you believe in, and helping friends celebrate something they believe in. “We honor our friends,” says Robin’s grandfather at book’s end, “when we share what is special in our lives with them.”

A tender and timely story, “Chanukah Bush” teaches children to take pride in their heritage, to honor the differences between cultures, and to share their traditions with others.

Recommended by the National Conference of Christians and Jews as a "...story promoting brotherhood and understanding," "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A CHANUKAH BUSH, SANDY GOLDSTEIN," is for every child who has ever felt different in our society.

[An EMMY-award winning film by the same name is available]
