Review by: Robert Butler on Jan. 9, 2011 :
36 Candles is a perfect eBook for me. The 36 vignettes are just long enough to read while standing on the train or subway. Many are classic stories, but I enjoyed them none the less because of the added biographical information. The stories were not of equal engaging, ranging to very good and laugh out loud to just okay. that said there is probably something for most people in the book, so enjoy.

If you are looking for a wonderful Chanukah gift for the family, or for your children/grandchildren, well this book is it. The stories are well constructed, and wonderful to read on all levels, enjoyable by both children an adults. Good to read as the Chanukah candles burn, or around the Shabbat table anytime. I'm hoping she will write more, both for adults and children.
