Filled with warmth and cheer, this new book by the bestselling team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague makes a perfect gift to be read again and again, year after year. How do dinosaurs say Happy Chanukah? The same way they say Merry Christmas: With an abundance of love, joy, memory, and gratitude.

This book is a cute companion to How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? Again, the dinosaurs don't behave inappropriately - they do just the right thing. The pictures are whimsically cute and fun.
