During Hanukka, the kids will be home from school and Holon, the city that bills itself as the children's city, will offer plays, storytelling and more for the kindergarten to elementary school set at the Mediatheque from December 23-29. In addition to performances of popular plays such as Emil and the Detectives, the ballet classic The Nutcracker as a musical, and Motek, favorite children's authors such as Yehuda Atlas and Michal Shalev will read from their books. There will be a book fair in the lobby with discounts on children's books, and participating authors will autograph their works. Children will be able to take part in interactive backstage tours conducted by the actors. Meanwhile, Holon's Children's Museum is getting into the act with Symbols of Love, an interactive exhibition for children four through eight at the At Eye Level Center; it will allow the children to learn about the signs and symbols of love through theater, music, the plastic arts and more, led by an alien and a plucky kid looking for love that's been lost. The Givatayim theater is also offering children's programs from December 23-29, ranging from Noah's Ark to Fitz the Dragon.
