The Magic of Hanukkah - A Bedtime Story

The last instalment of the Romy’s Garden Adventures series was a Christmas themed tale which celebrated the magic of Christmas. So, just so I don’t seem biased to one religion, I thought it might be nice to do the next adventures as a Hanukkah special. Yeeeehaw! Go Judaism!
