Have you ever heard of Fat Bear Week?

Fat Bear Week is an annual tournament held at Brooks River, Alaska, in Katmai National Park and Preserve. The preserve stretches about 4.1 million acres. The event determines the fattest bear of the year in Brooks River. From Sept. 30 through Oct. 6, anybody can cast their vote to decide the fattest bear.

It all started as an event titled Fat Bear Tuesday in 2014. It grew into a weeklong contest a year later in hopes of raising awareness about wildlife in the park and preserve, the home of about 2,200 brown bears.

 I reviewed “The Littlest Candle: A Hanukkah Story.” Every day during Hanukkah a candle is lit. In this book the candles come to life. They can talk, walk, dance and sing. The candles try to convince the other candles to vote for them to be the first one lit.

One of the main candles is Little Flicker, who is the smallest candle in the box. He sleeps in a kitchen drawer. Ms. Wicks is another character and so is Waxy, who is a very smart candle and teaches the history of Hanukkah and the importance of every candle in the menorah.
