What you need to know before your trail

Hanukkah in Alaska is unlike anywhere else.

Snow piles up over the windows. Daylight is only five hours long. And one girl finds a moose camped out in her backyard, right near her favorite blue swing. She tries everything to lure it away: apples, carrots, even cookies. But it just keeps eating more tree! It’s not until the last night of Hanukkah that a familiar holiday tradition provides the perfect—and surprising—solution

Travel Guide


“ In Alaska in winter, we have to watch out for moose. We have to look both ways when we go out the door making sure there were no moose around. That’s because moose are very bit and they kick things which surprise them or make them angry. Their big kicks are strong enough to dent a car.”


“When my friends and I am playing outside and a moose comes along we have to hug a tree. A moose can’t step on you or knock you over if you’re hanging a tree”

How lovely is this! Sound advice, gorgeous drawings and a very nice story too about Hanukkah and how to celebrate when you have moose wandering around your town!
