The Runaway Latkes by Leslie Kimmelman
Rebecca made the crispiest, tastiest, most perfect latkes. As she was frying up this traditional Hanukkah dish, three of her oh-so-perfect latkes tumbled out of the town crying, "Big and round, crisp and brown, now we're off to see the town! And YOU can't catch us!" As the latkes rolled by they got the whole town chasing after them so they could prepare them for the evening's Hanukkah festivities. This is a great lighthearted holiday read for younger kids. It even has a recipe for latkes at the back of the book!
