Trees of the Dancing Goats

Amy reads Trees of the Dancing Goats, written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco and published by Aladdin Picture Books.

As Trisha’s family prepares to celebrate Hanukkah, they learn that many of their neighbors have been stricken with the fever. Concerned that their friends might not be able to prepare for and celebrate Christmas, the family is moved to action. Working into the night, they prepare food, candles, and small trees decorated with Grandpa’s hand-carved toys—goats and other animals lovingly created for his grandchildren for Hanukkah.
