 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.
