Since Hanukkah has started, we couldn’t resist sharing this America’s-Funniest-Home-Video-worthy clip of Clara tapping into the spirit of the holiday. In the video below she’s just playing with a wooden spinning top  (actually made in India and given to us by a reader at one of our DC book signings) but having watched an episode of Calliou about Hanukkah she’s convinced that it’s a dreidel. At least she’s a little bit closer than when we caught her singing “Play-doh, play-doh, play-doh. I made you out of clay!” one afternoon.

Also be warned that this video is basically a night at the Petersiks in its rawest, most unglamorous form. Don’t worry, she was ok…

… and yes, that really is Sherry’s cell phone ring.
