Happy Hanukkah! Watch the Dreidle Songs! Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story (ages 6-10)



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!

Kids! Help Save the World Here! (Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story, ages 6-10)


 

If you’ve read the award-winning Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story, you know that Katie is the kind of girl who likes to HELP people and animals (um, and ghosts!). Now, here are three ways that YOU can help people and animals, too.

It’s fun and it’s important. And you can learn great things at the same time! I’ve added all three to the Katie & Kimble sidebar. That section of the sidebar is called Save the World.

 

 

 

1) A 12-year-old girl named Mimi Ausland from Oregon started a website called FreeKibble.com. Kibble means pieces of dog or cat food. Every day, Mimi adds a new Bow Wow Trivia question about dogs. If you answer the question (correctly or not), Mimi will donate 10 pieces of kibble to dogs who live in shelters. This really adds up! Mimi has provided dogs with thousands and thousands of pounds of dog food. That must be very heavy to carry!

 

 

 

2) Mimi also started a site to help feed cats. So if you go to the FreeKibbleKat.com website and answer the Meow Trivia question every day, Mimi will donate 10 pieces of kibble for cats!

 

 

 

 

3) The third way that you can help is found at FreeRice.com. Here, if you answer questions correctly, FreeRice will donate 10 grains of rice to a hungry person for each question you answer. This can add up quickly, because you can keep answering questions as long as you
want.

 

 

FreeRice has all kinds of questions. You can start at the lowest level and build your English vocabulary. Or you can do the same thing in other languages, too, like Spanish and French.

 

 

They also have questions about art and famous artists, where you get to look at famous pictures. You can also look at maps to answer questions about countries and world capitals. And you can practice your math and multiplication tables and earn rice for hungry people at the same time! You also get to keep track of how much rice you’ve donated.

 

 

So, have fun, learn things, and help dogs, cats and people! Here’s to saving the world!
