‘A Wild, WILD Hanukkah’ - Reading with Jo Gershman

Calendar/Event Details

On the first night of Hanukkah, the door flies open and a perky polar bear walks into the house, shaking the snow from his fur. On the second night of Hanukkah, two crusty, crying crocodiles peel onions, followed the next night by three toothy tigers who’ve come to pluck potatoes from a sack. Every night more wild animals join the party, singing, making latkes, and spinning dreidels. As Hanukkah comes to an end, the stars twinkle, and the candles burn out. Then it’s time for bed.

When she was a little girl, Jo Gershman dreamed of illustrating picture books and of having a pony. Years later, she feels incredibly fortunate that both dreams have come true. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, two cats, and a lovely Morgan mare. You can see more of her work at
