On the first night of Hanukkah, a family rescues a golden brown dog from the animal shelter and names it Latke in honor of the beginning of the holiday. Each night, he gets in a bit of trouble - eating a platter of sufganiyot (fried donuts), tearing open presents, chewing up candles - and each night the family gets a little angry, and then forgives him. A new pet is a growing experience for both the family and the pup, but this charming book focuses on Latke's gratitude for being taken in ("I am one lucky dog!") and forgiven. A brief description of the holiday is included. Ages 4 and up.
