Author and speaker Dawn Wynne is celebrating Hanukkah with her family.
She’s also celebrating Christmas.
And her latest book, The Miracle Mitzvah Moose, celebrates the principles of love and giving at the core of both holidays.
As a mom, Dawn has taught her daughter the true spirit of the season. With a blended family that observes both Jewish and Christian customs every year, she has started a tradition from which grew the idea for The Miracle Mitzvah Moose. An inspiring children’s book that may very well get the whole family into the Hanukkah (or Christmas) spirit, The Miracle Mitzvah Moose comes with a toy, “Moosey”, which Dawn designed to go with the story.
With a background in education, Dawn has been honored as with both the “Teacher of the Year” and “Superintendents’ Award” for teaching excellence. Meanwhile, she is an Amazon Children’s bestselling author, with honors including Indie Excellence Finalist and the Readers’ Favorite Silver Award for her previous books
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for activities for young household members home for winter vacation, Dawn has coloring, baking and craft activities on the “Kid’s Corner” of her website. And she’s available as a speaker–not just for Hanukkah topics but to offer a “fun” history lesson from her second book, I Remember When..., or a message of sustainability from her first one, Earth Remembers When.
Dawn talked about her background, the experience of writing and publishing The Miracle Mitzvah Moose and her family’s traditions for Christmas and Hanukkah.
