Looking for a good, child friendly, latke recipe for Hanukkah? There's more than enough recipes included in the picture books below to fill all eight nights of the holiday, and then some. Links on the book titles, when present, will take you to the authors', or another, website, where you can view the recipe for yourself, if you find all the books already checked out at your local library.
Malke's Secret Recipe by David A. Adler
The Runaway Latkes by Leslie Kimmelman
I Have a Little Dreidel by Maxie Baum. This book also includes instructions for playing Dreidel, and sheet music for the Dreidel Song. The entire text can be sung to the tune of the song.
Inside-Out Grandma, A Hanukkah Story by Joan Rothenberg.
The Very Best Hanukkah Gift by Joanne Rocklin. This one contains a recipe for zucchini latkes (you have to page down a bit on the website I linked, to view the recipe, but it's there, and listed with the book title).
It's Hanukkah Time! by Latifa Berry Kropf, contains a recipe for Sufganiyot (donuts) instead of Latkes, but since I don't have a separate "books with donut recipes" list, I decided to include it here.
The Borrowed Hanukkah Latkes by Linda Glaser. Click here, for a review of this book, and a tip or two for making latkes, from Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.
Latkes, Latkes Good to Eat, a Chanukah Story by Naomi Howland.
Lots of Latkes a Hanukkah Story by Sandy Lanton.
Latkes and Applesauce, A Hanukkah Story by Fran Manushkin. This book also contains rules for playing Dreidel. Both the rules, and the recipe can be viewed in Amazon's "Look Inside This Book" feature, here, by typing "recipe" in the search box.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
