Holiday Storytime and Craft Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster by Jane Sutton It’s hard to pick the perfect Hanukkah gift, and Esther the Gorilla’s choices turn out hilariously wrong. A jogging suit for a turtle?! An elephant joke book for an elephant?! But everything gets sorted out when Esther invites her friends to a joyful Hanukkah party. Join local author Jane Sutton for an entertaining storytelling about a well-meaning gorilla who buys silly gifts for her animal friends.
