Product Description
 
Nate Gadol can make anything last longer - just as long as you need it. And his magical powers come in pretty handy during the harsh winters, when Hanukkah gifts for the children are hard to come by. Well-known children's author Arthur A. Levine joins the Candlewick list for the first time with this charming holiday hybrid story, a mythical take on how some Jewish families came to give and receive Hanukkah gifts in the way that many of their Christian neighbors did - but with the loving and magical holiday spirit named Nate Gadol behind the scenes rather than Santa Claus!Nate Gadol can make anything last longer - just as long as you need it.
