"What do you do when your celebration needs a candle, but yours are all gone? You ask your neighbors if they have one to spare. And then, when the next neighbor needs a candle, you pass it on. A multicultural assortment of neighbors passes a squat, lumpy candle from apartment to apartment allowing for a host of winter holidays, celebrations, and family reunions to go on. A story about a caring apartment complex that glows brightly with the warmth of community and sharing."
-Erica Dean Glenn, Children's Librarian
"A delightful and beautiful story that shows a simple, common object can unite neighbors and our families. Let the light shine."
-Jennifer Fosberry, New York Times best-selling author of My Name is Not Isabella: Just How Big Can a Little Girl Dream?
