    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "This is a great book, with delightful illustrations and a classic story. I think it's great for kids of all religions, not just Jewish children. Given the relative rarity of non-European, non Christian folktale books for kids I think this is a no brainer."

      "This is a humorous way to teach kids about the meaning of hanukkah and how it differs from Christmas. The latke has answers to the Christmas symbols about what hanukkah is and is not. Must have for people with children!"

      "This picture book does feature Jewish characters such as a Rabbi, but the lessons that it teaches are fairly universal - everyone can benefit from being thankful for what they have, even if some things are not going well. The illustrations are very "human", which I prefer to some modern digital art which can fall squarely into a sort of uncanny valley. This looks be a fairly famous book, and it seems to deserve that reputation - some might consider it a little dated, but, as I mentioned, it has universal lessons that can apply to both the religious and non-religious."

So even if you don't celibrate Hanukkah or are even of Jewish heritage get this book for your child. They will love it and it will inform them of other cultures of the world as well. done."

      "At holiday times we read stories from several religions and cultures since my family is a mishmash melting pot. This is one of our absolute favorites. Even if you don’t have a child to share this with right now pick it up for yourself, the illustrations are beautiful and the stories are short and mostly funny."

      "The Carp in the Bathtub is definitely one of the best Jewish picture books on the market. It was published in the 80's and I love this genre so I don't know how I missed it. The pictures are splendid and it's such a cute story! I liked it so much that I bought a copy for a friend!"
