The Three Latkes

The Three Latkes by Eric A. Kimmel, illustrated by Feronia Parker-Thomas is an adorable story about three Hanukkah latkes fighting over which one tastes the best! A red latke, made with red potatoes, claims to be the best because it’s fried in vegetable oil and has a beautiful crispy outside. A yellow latke says it’s the best because it’s made with delicious schmaltz or chicken fat. And the gold latke claims the title of healthiest because it’s fried in peanut oil. Unable to decide, they ask a cunning cat to taste test the three of them with different delicious toppings--applesauce, sour cream, or jam--and the cat is more than happy to help! This cute fable is a celebration of a special Hanukkah treat. (Holiday Books)
