This Rabbi Kerry Olitzky Bundle includes 3 books:
THE LITTLEST CANDLE: A HANUKKAH STORY written with Rabbi Jesse Olitzky with illustrations by Jen Kostman. Little Flicker is always cheering his friends on with words of encouragement and support. But as the smallest candle in the box, why should he be chosen to be the shamash in the Hanukkah menorah? Isn't the job of lighting all the others candles too big for him? As it turns out, it's the size of your heart that matters, and in that department, Little Flicker is huge! This book's bright and quirky illustrations make it easy to imagine the possibility of a world where candles walk, talk, dance, and sing. Kids will love exploring the details of Little Flicker's life inside his cozy drawer. Book ships immediatley.
