New childrens eBook for Hanukkah is a rare treat for the whole family

MONTREAL (PRWEB) November 04, 2014

The brainchild of authors Shoshana Moscovitz and Robert Thompson, Jacobs Hanukkah Surprise! tells of the heartwarming bond between a puppy and a young boy while presenting the joyous traditions of the Hanukkah holiday.

Moscovitz, a kindergarten (K-3) teacher for many years, notes that there is not enough material about Hanukkah for pre-schoolers and their families. I have always been fascinated by people whose birthdays fall on special holidays, she adds. So we wrote this story about a young Jewish boy whose birthday coincides with Hanukkah. He is a special child, and his special birthday turns into a real adventure for the whole family.

In the story, a young boy named Jacob receives a puppy for his birthday on Hanukkah, and he is ecstatic. He and the puppy become close friends. But when the puppy is mysteriously missing at Jacobs birthday party, he and his family and friends turn the house upside-down to find him.

Readers will enjoy this wholesome tale of the love shared between puppy and child and the warm family values in the celebration of the Festival of Lights. The story is entertaining for kids of all religions, especially kids who love animals. Hebrew lyrics and transliterations are also included to facilitate sing-alongs.

The eBook is available in electronic picture book format at all online bookstores, including,, It is downloadable instantaneously directly to your computer (PC, Mac, Android) and all electronic reading devices. Coming soon in a special iPad edition (animated, professionally narrated, self-recording, touch-screen painting and puzzles) at the Apple App Store.
