“Oni and the Kingdom of Onion” teaches children about the first Hanukkah

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The children’s book “One and the Kingdom of Onion” is the first children’s book to address the accurate historical truth of the first Hanukkah.

Author and Rabbi Marc Rubenstein focuses on the main character of Oni, an onion. Oni’s vegetable friends in the refrigerator talk to one another about how people fight and sometimes can’t get along before talking about the origins of the first Hanukkah and the importance of religious history.

Despite their differences in shapes, sizes, and colors, the ingredients in a salad work together to create a healthy meal. “Oni and the Kingdom of Onion” teaches respect, tolerance, diversity, caring, and sharing.

Children love and identify with Oni and parents appreciate that the story stresses healthy eating and core values. Through Oni’s story, children are encouraged to be accepting of others and work towards common goals, all while learning about an important religious holiday.
