‘Monica’s Chanukah, and More’ by Rita Fidler Dorn—A Book Review Put To Verse
Author, Rita Dorn, asks her readers in “Monica’s Chanukah, & More” to write a Chanukah poem.
Rita’s book even gives the kids a blank page to write the poem on.
Well here’s my review in verse.
“Monica’s Chanukah, & More” will make you kvell
So why don’t you buy it and sit for a spell
It’s a book as sweet as donut jelly
dripping off your fingers onto your belly
It’s a book chock-full-of recipes
But it wasn’t written by the Maccabees.
Rather a college professor wrote this story
about Monica and all her glory
As Monica celebrates the Festival of Lights
Rita takes this tale to new heights
Joyous illustrations by Hafsa Pinar
Are great to view after dinner
As mothers in the kitchen do toil
I smell lotsa latkes frying in oil
In the dining room the children devour their gelt
I take the time to loosen my belt
Rita your book is a joy and a delight
So I’m going to read it again tonight
“Monica’s Chanukah, & More” is available in paperback or on Kindle and can be bought on Amazon and Google Books
