Elan, Son of Two Peoples

Elan, Son of Two Peoples - Heidi Smith Hyde I bought this book with the kindergarten year-long unit on celebrations in mind and it did not disappoint. I'm always happy to find Jewish books about something other than Hanukkah and I think this will introduce my students - many Third Culture and bicultural kids - to cultures new to them and different, but Elan's story will, I hope, resonate with them as he finds a happy place in both worlds.
