Reading Aloud The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming

Dear Latke,

I just read you aloud to my fourth grade class and it was great fun. While a religiously diverse group of children, a number are Jewish and very excited as it is the first night of Hanukah. They did want to correct the teller of your story, Mr Snicket, now and then (and me as I had a hard time pronouncing “Antiochus”correctly) until they saw what was what. Given the significance of the ax in another familiar story, that picture packed a wallop. I think most of all they enjoyed playing your part and screaming as loud as they could every time you did!
