Really enjoyed the story of the Dreidel . I am an American who happens to have two of these history telling toys. I love how a toy represents such a full story of the Jewish people.

As Emily Dickinson wrote...

I had a little dreidel
I dropped in the soup
And when poor Daddy had some
Our father chipped a tooth
