The Count's Hanukkah Countdown by Tilda Balsley and Ellen Fischer illustrated by Tom Leigh

"At an awesome Hanukkah party on Sesame Street, Grover and the Count welcome visiting Muppet friends, Brosh and Avigail. They tell the story of Hanukkah, feast on latkes, and learn that EIGHT is the perfect Hanukkah number." (book jacket)

This book is a nice introduction to the Hanukkah story. Using the Muppets  we grew up with was a really fun touch. As I read this book, Grover and the Count's voices were in my head the whole time. I loved it.
