Happy Hanukah! Watch the Dreidel Songs Here! Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story for ages 6-10 #IARTG



In Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story, Book 1 in the Katie & Kimble series, Kimble teaches Katie how to play dreidel.

 

Dreidel is a game that Jewish children play during Hanukah.

 

Dreidels come in many sizes with many different designs and colors. The dreidel pictured on the left is called a Noah’s Ark dreidel because the pictures tell the story of Noah’s Ark. It was painted by an artist named Yair Emanuel. It’s got a little stand to hold it up.

 

The dreidel below is really something amazing to see. It’s very big – 10 inches high, in fact – and it’s a plush toy! I thought that was pretty interesting. I don’t suppose you can actually play dreidel with such a big dreidel, but it might be comfy to keep on your bed!

 

In Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story, you learn how to play dreidel at the same time that Kimble teaches
Katie how to play.

 

Below, I’ve included a couple of great Dreidel Song videos. In the first one, Jono sings about his favorite game, Dreidel, but he gets the history of playing dreidel all mixed up. When the rabbi tries to correct him, Jono just doesn’t listen!

 

 

Kenny Ellis sings his hit single from his Hanukkah Swings! Album on Favored Nations Records. Check out: www.kennyellis.com

 

 


Interesting Fact:
Hanukah is sometimes spelled in different ways! You might see it like this, with 2 k’s–Hanukkah–or you might see it like this, with a c–Chanukah!
