Hannah's Hanukkah Hiccups

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Bob McMahon. A prolonged case of the hiccups has Hannah worried about her solo at her school's Hanukkah program. She tries various cures suggested by a multicultural group of neighbors in her building. Nothing helps, and she performs in spite of her hiccups. On the final night of Hanukkah, while celebrating with neighbors, the hiccups stop. The story is slight but amusing; the muted-color illustrations show Hannah's family's holiday activities.
