One woman needed a candle because it was Thanksgiving, but she didn’t have one. So she borrowed one from the owner of the apartment building. Then, another family needed a candle for ending the Sabbath. They borrowed the candle. A third family borrowed it because it was the day of Saint Lucia. It was used for a Kwanzaa candle, and finally it lit the way for the dad to get home safely.
I liked the story because everyone is sharing one little candle; it goes from one family to another to another – it goes on and on and on. One little candle can complete one little miracle. I liked how it made all the neighbors get to know each other and be friends with each other even though they were different and celebrated different holidays. At the end of the book you can learn about the different holidays; we learned about it one by one. The pictures were really absolutely fun; the people seemed friendly and like the families loved each other.
