Book Review: The Littlest Levine By Sandy Lanton, Illustrated by Claire Keay

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Hannah Levine is the smallest member of her family. She is not able to do a lot of things that the other members of her family can do like close the oven, put plates on a high shelf, and light a menorah. Her grandfather keeps telling her that her day is going to be coming soon. Every evening after dinner she and her grandfather go off together so that he can teach her…and nobody knows just what exactly until the day comes when Hannah has her own special role that only the Littlest Levine can fill.

Hannah’s grandfather was there for in the story while she was going through hard moments of not being able to do things other members of her family could. Her family members did allow her to do some things, just not the kind of things other members of her family could. He was also there to teach her something so she can have an important role in the family also; I liked how he created special time just for her to teach her, which probably made her feel special.

I love how Kar-Ben books usually explain the main topic of the book after the story is over; in this case it was Passover. The description included the purpose of the Passover holiday, what is done during the holiday, and what is eaten.

My review = 5 out of 5 stars

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Kar-Ben Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
