Marc steps into the "Magic Booth" and vanishes! It all started when Marc ran away one night to try to get his parents to buy him a virtual reality hook-up. In the woods outside his house he encounters Tanta Teva, a cleaning lady who is busy scrubbing graffiti off rocks in the forest. She come equipped with a funny green booth called a "sukkah" and makes Marc step in. Together Marc and Tanta Teva visit Joshua (from the Bible), David (before he gets to be king of Israel), and Hillel (before he becomes a great rabbi in ancient Jerusalem). When Marc returns home, no one really believes the stories of where he'd been and whom he'd met! Would you?

When Marc meets a strange little old lady in the woods at night, she uses her magic sukkah to take him back in time, where he learns things about Biblical history that he never heard in Hebrew School.

Happy Hanukkah, Corduroy I Have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing up in the Holocaust And Shira Imagined
Celebrate the festival of lights with Corduroy.

Corduroy's having a Hanukkah party for all of his friends. First they light the menorah, then they eat yummy potato pancakes. After they open presents, there's time for a game of dreidel. Introduce little boys and girls to all of the Hanukkah traditions with Corduroy, one of the most beloved children's books characters for over forty years.
A graphic narrative describes what happens to a 13-year-old Jewish girl when the Nazis invade Hungary in 1944. Includes a brief chronology of the Holocaust.

The author describes her experiences during World War II when she and her family were sent to the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.
As Shira and her parents travel around Israel, her parents remind her of the significance of each site, which she interprets in her own way: when told that busy, modern Tel Aviv was only sand and dust 80 years ago, Shira pictures herself and some toy-like creatures building sandcastles; when she hears that the old fortress, Masada, was the place where the Jews clashed with the Romans, Shira imagines a playful battle. A historical theme is not strictly adhered to; at one point her parents point out the Red Sea, saying, ``Just imagine, we'll be looking at thousands of fish and swimming with them.'' In the final frame, Shira envisions her bedroom back in America, where the cast of her imagination awaits her toys. Black-and-white pictures of modern Israel alternate with the full-color fantasies. The language of the telling is simple and straightforward; this complements the elaborate pictures from Carmi's own fanciful imagination. Ages 3-7

House on Kyverdale Road PB Magic Babushka  PB Passover Parrot (PB)
It was old fashioned silver brooch of unique design, family heirloom bearing name "Yehudis" in Hebrew lettering - gift from Judy's great uncle Martin.  He was also kind enough to offer his unoccupied property on Kyverdale Road as home base for her research on inner city life.  For Judy Marks, who cannot even read inscription, brooch at first seems meaningless relic.  But from moment she enters dilapidated house & finds herself inexplicably drawn to family next door & to unfamiliar community so different from anything she's ever experienced, silver bar pin begins to grow in significance. The babushka was a scarf worn by Russian grandmothers and also means grandmother.  In this story, Baba Babochka, the ancient Butterfly Woman, grants Nadia her wish and gives her a babushka, but this gift may not be what it seems.  In the course of the story, Nadia eats blini the thin pancakes for blintzes, and borscht, foods common to Russian Jewish tradition as well.  This story shows us that many of our Jewish customs are shared with Russian Christians.  PB  Ages 7-11 by Phyllis Limbzcher Tildes Passover Parrot by Evelyn Zusman.

Based on a true incident that occurred in Billings, Montana, this story begins when a rock is thrown through Isaac's bedroom window in which a menorah is displayed. Frightened, he removes it. Afterwards, the mother goes on television and to a meeting to talk about hate crimes in the community, and inspired by stories of the Danish people helping their Jewish neighbors during World War II, the whole town puts menorahs in their windows to take a stand against bigotry. Reassured, Isaac replaces the menorah in his window. Realistic soft-focus oil paintings dramatize the action and personalize the characters. Background information is provided in the introduction.

Money Madness Picture Book of Harry Houdini (PB) Beadle (HB)
This guide to basic economics will make readers think about the purpose, not just the value, of money.

What would we do without money? Long ago, people traded rocks or sheep for the items they wanted; but rocks are heavy and sheep run away, so today we have money.
Readers will be mesmerized by this captivating biography of one of the most celebrated escape artists and magicians in history.

Harry Houdini astounded audiences around the globe with his death-defying acts and illusions. With his wife, Bess, often by his side, he freed himself from ropes, handcuffs, straight jackets, and prison cells. Though Harry was always intrigued by magic, his life was not always so glamorous. As a boy he shined shoes to help his family make ends meet. Yet a career in magic was always in the cards.

Al Capone Does My Shirts Letters from Rifka

    by
    Karen Hesse It's Okay to Be Different  (PB)
Today I moved to a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water. I'm not the only kid who lives here. There's my sister, Natalie, except she doesn't count. And there are twenty-three other kids who live on the island because their dads work as guards or cook's or doctors or electricians for the prison, like my dad does. Plus, there are a ton of murderers, rapists, hit men, con men, stickup men, embezzlers, connivers, burglars, kidnappers and maybe even an innocent man or two, though I doubt it. The convicts we have are the kind other prisons don't want. I never knew prisons could be picky, but I guess they can. You get to Alcatraz by being the worst of the worst. Unless you're me. I came here because my mother said I had to.

America, the girl repeated. What will you do there?

I was silent for a little time.

I will do everything there, I answered.

Rifka knows nothing about America when she flees from Russia with her family in 1919. But she dreams she will at last be safe from the Russian soldiers and their harsh treatment of the Jews in the new country. Throughout her journey, Rifka carries with her a cherished volume of poetry by Alexander Pushkin. In it, she records her observations and experiences in the form of letters to her beloved cousin she has left behind. Strong-hearted and determined, Rifka must endure a great deal: humiliating examinations by doctors and soldiers, deadly typhus, separation from all she has ever known and loved, murderous storms at seaand as if this is not enough, the loss of her glorious golden hair. And even if she does make it to America, shes not sure America will have her.

In letters to her cousin, a young Jewish girl chronicles her family's flight from Russia in 1919 and her own experiences when she must be left in Belgium for a while when the others immigrate to America

It's the last night of Hanukkah, and more relatives are coming than originally planned. Rachel decides to borrow potatoes from Mrs. Greenberg. She asks Mrs. Greenberg, who is all alone, to come for Hanukkah. But Mrs. Greenberg is very stubborn!

A young girl finds a way to include her elderly neighbor in her family's Hanukkah celebration.

Children's Literature Review:
Rachel's house will be filled to overflowing with invited guests and also last-minute guests, but the potato sack and egg tray are empty by now. How will there be enough latkes? Mrs. Greenberg next door might help, and is happy to, but she just won't come join Rachel's family for Hanukkah. "'She's got a heart of gold, but she's as stubborn as an ox," says Mama.'" But she meets her match in Rachel and rediscovers the joy of celebrating within a family rather than alone. The story is delicious, and the language is, too, with treasures like: "Mrs. Greenberg's house was always clean and tidy, like its face was just scrubbed and its blouse was tucked in, while Rachel's house always looked like it was still in its pajamas and needed to brush its hair yet." Cote's gouache and colored pencil pictures are a delight, as lively as the story they enhance.

Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest Cow that went Oink
Lou Gehrig's perseverance is legendary. During fourteen years as a first baseman for the New York Yankees, he played in a record 2,130 consecutive games, earning himself the nickname Iron Horse. Lou loved baseball and considered himself a very lucky man, even though on his thirty-sixth birthday he was diagnosed with a rare and fatal disease. In the Amazon rain forest, a man is chopping down a great Kapok tree.
Exhausted from his labors, a man chopping down a great kapok tree in the Brazilian rain forest puts down his ax, and, as he sleeps, the animals who live in the tree plead with him not to destroy their world.
A cow that goes oink? A pig that goes moo?  What kind of funny farm is this?   A delightful picture book that teaches an important message: it's OK to be different, and we can learn to get along and accommodate, even help each other.  Parents Magazine book of the Year; Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Winer; A Chilren's Book-of-the-Month Club selection.

Sammy Spider's First Rosh Hashanah (PB) That's Like Me! Four Sides, Eight Nights: A New Spin on Hanukkah
Sammy Spider's First Rosh Hashanah

by Sylvia A. Rouss
VOYA
Sixteen people with learning disabilities are profiled in two-page spreads complete with photos and descriptions of how each struggled in school yet found success in other activities in which they could excel. Those chosen cover a wide range of ages and accomplishments. The youngest is a sixth-grade soccer player. The most reconizable are Jerry Pinkney, whose story becomes the foreword for the book, and Ann Bancroft, an explorer whose visit to Antarctica was witnessed by three million students via the Internet. The adults also include a firefighter, veterinarian, trapeze artist, and musician. A female wrestler, race-car driver, and artist are some of the teens whose stories are included. Writing for students with learning disabilities, the author does not dwell on methods these people used to cope with their individual learning disabilities. Instead the focus is on how hardship in school should not limit a person to finding success in other areas of life. The author concentrates on putting a positive and upbeat voice to those who are learning disabled, hoping that these testimonies will encourage like students to find their own area of excellence. The author encourages parents and teachers to share the book with learning-challenged students to prompt discussion. Included at the back of the book are pages where a reader can write his own success storymaking this book more suited to individual ownership than a library resource. Reviewer: Chris Carlson
Four sides of a toy, eight nights of celebration, forty-four candles burning in honor of an ancient miracle, two-thousand-one-hundred-seventy-some years of Hanukkah  everything you ever wanted to know about the Hanukkah holiday, centered of the children's game of dreidel (a spinning top). Jokes, history, customs, trivia, science facts (just how fast does a dreidel spin?) come to life with wacky and informative illustrations throughout.

Resistance The Secret of Gabi's Dresser The Trees of the Dancing Goats
Jan and Elli are sure that even when the war ends, things will never get back to normal. Their fathers work with the Nazis and these two friends pay the price. Bullied by classmates, disliked by their teacher, hated by their neighbors, Jan and Elli become friends. Regardless of their fathers' loyalties, Jan and Elli decide to fight the Nazis in their own way. Together they secretly work against the Germans. The heroine, Gabi, recounts how as a young Jewish girl she lived on a family farm in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. She describes her community before the Nazi occupation and the events that unfolded afterwards. When the Nazis conducted house searches for Jewish children, Gabi successfully hid in the dining-room dresser. The only thing retrieved from the home after the war was the dresser that saved Gabi's life. It now sits in author Kathy Kacer's home in Toronto. Kacer is Gabi's daughter and has based the story on her mother's experiences.

When the Nazis invade Czechoslovakia in 1942 life for Gabi, a Jewish girl, changes forever and will never be the same.
Trisha loves the eight days of Hanukkah, when her mother stays home from work, her Babushka makes delicious potato latkes, and her Grampa carves wonderful animals out of wood as gifts for Trisha and her brother. In the middle of her family's preparation for the festival of lights, Trisha visits her closest neighbors, expecting to find them decorating their house for Christmas. Instead they are all bedridden with scarlet fever. Trisha's family is one of the few who has been spared from the epidemic. It is difficult for them to enjoy their Hanukkah feast when they know that their neighbors won't be able to celebrate their holiday. Then Grampa has an inspiration: they will cut down trees, decorate them, and secretly deliver them to the neighbors, "But what can we decorate them with?" Babushka asks. Although it is a sacrifice, Trisha realizes that Grampa's carved animals are the perfect answer. Soon her living room is filled with trees  but that is only the first miracle of many during an incredible holiday season.

Based on a long cherished childhood memory, this story celebrates the miracle of true friendship.

During a scarlet fever epidemic one winter in Michigan, a Jewish family helps make Christmas special for their sick neighbors by making their own Hanukkah miracle. Based on a memory from the author's childhood.

More Than Matzah : A Passover Feast of Fun, Facts, And Activities

by Nancy Lane ; Debbie Herman ; Ann D. Koffsky

The first twenty-four pages of this book tell the story of Passover, and nearly every page has a sidebar or two that contains either fun facts or extra info. Did the Israelites' slaves build the Pyramids? Which real, historic Pharaoh may have ordered the Israelite midwives to kill male babies? Possible answers are right here. And the illustrations are lovely, so that while the story can be read in other books, this one is unusual.

After the story comes the meat of the book: the activities. There are ten of these. The first one is the simplest—decorate a cover for a Haggadah, and make a bookmark. But why stop at one? Koffsky does not suggest this, but rather than have each child make his or her own, why not make covers for all the guests' books? While the adults are busy preparing for the Seder, the children can be kept busy and out of their way. The rest of the crafts may call for some adult supervision and/or participation.

1 + 1 = 3 and 37 Other Mitzvah Principles to Live By (PB) God Book: A Necessarily Incomplete Look at the Essence of God (PB) Rosie in New York City: Gotcha!
A book by Danny Siegel The God Book: A Necessarily Incomplete Look at the Essence of God is, according to the author, Rabbi Paul Yedwab, "an antidote to premature atheism." This is not a theology textbook: It's a thinking, feeling, and sharing textbook. Each chapter features a "My God Diary," in which students can write about their feelings, thoughts, doubts and affirmations about the "Unknowable." At age eleven, Rosie Lepidus's main concerns are winning ring-a-levio, going to school, and staying out of trouble. But when Mama falls ill with pneumonia and Papa throws all the family's savings into the nickelodeon business, the burden of caring for her family falls on Rosie's shoulders.

Tall for her age, Rosie is able to pass for sixteen and take Mama's place sewing sleeves at a shirtwaist factory. Her family needs the money. But working conditions are horrible and the factory boss is incredibly strict. The girls are fined for nearly everything -- even talking or humming! Within days of starting work, Rosie hears the buzz about a huge strike of twenty thousand shirtwaist workers. It's the strike that Mama's been working toward for ages: a huge push for change in the workplace. Rosie wants to join in, but as the streets become more dangerous, Papa asks his daughter to return to school. And Rosie must choose: follow Papa's orders...or fight with everything she's got.

When Mama falls ill and Papa invests all the family's money in a new business, eleven-year-old Rosie Lepidus must go to work in a garment factory and soon gets involved in union activities.

Thirty true stories profile kids who used their heads, their hearts, their courage, and sometimes their stubbornness to help others and do extraordinary things. As young readers meet these boys and girls from around the world, they may wonder, What kind of hero lives inside of me? Jacobo loves to visit his grandmother ("abuelita") in Santa Fe, New Mexico. While there, he befriends David, a Jewish child, and Jacobo notices that Davids family has many of the same traditions as his abuelita: they dont eat pork, they light two candles on Friday nights, and they eat unleavened bread during Passover. Jacobo suspects that the tortillas his own grandmother serves during semana santa, Holy Week, are Easter Matzahs! In engaging, accessible language, ABUELITAS SECRET MATZAHS tells children the fascinating but little-known story of Crypto Jews, Jews forced to convert to Christianity during the Spanish Inquisition who secretly maintained their Jewish identity and customs throughout the agesoften unaware of the reasons for some of these customs. When Jacobo persists in asking his grandmother about these practices, she tells him the secret of their past and offers him the chance to be the keeper of traditions for his generation. As Jacobo learns about the origins of his family, he begins to think about his own place in the chain of the generations. After reading the story, parents and children will be able to discuss their own family traditions and history.

A Shavuos Story

by Rebecca Klempner. illustrated by Chava
One by one, Tova Leiba's siblings find fault with their seats at the Shabbos (Jewish Sabbath) dinner table-too near to the wall, too-loose cushion stuffing, too close to the messy baby. Tova Leiba cheerfully trades chairs with each brother or sister and finds something to enjoy about every spot. By the end of the evening, the other children have caught on to her positive attitude and end up sharing chairs and hugging. The story illustrates the biblical proverb, "To a good-hearted person, life's a constant celebration." The internal logic of the tale is sacrificed somewhat to make this point (e.g., Why are the other children never reprimanded for their constant complaining?), but Tova Leiba's joyful personality carries readers past such concerns. However, the girl's rhyming refrain, "Here or there, in any chair, I'll be happy anywhere," remains out of place in an otherwise realistic prose narrative. Binus's dynamic color illustrations add a great deal of life to a text that could otherwise be staid and preachy. The characters' faces and body language sing with strong emotions, and there is a surprising amount of movement for a story that takes place at the dinner table.

As her family sits down to make masks, a young girl knows it's time for Purim, the holiday that celebrates how Queen Esther saved the Jewish people. It's time for making hamantashen, pastries filled with poppy seeds and honey. Time to place these pastries in homemade paper gift baskets with candy and fruit. Time for the Purim carnival, for playing games and watching the Purim parade. And, of course, time to put on their new costumes and masks.

But this year the girl can't help but wonder why they wear masks on Purim. As her family acts out the Purim story, she discovers not only the story behind the masks, but the place of God in their lives.

Lon-Lon's Big Night (HB) Toby Belfer Learns about Heroes and Martyrs Hiding Edith
Lon-Lon's Big Night

by Miri Leshem-Pelly
More than six million European Jews were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust. While this tragedy was taking place, thousands of Christian men and women sacrificed their safety and even their lives to provide much-needed help to the Jews. When Toby Belfer and her friend Donna, both now in the fifth grade, visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum, they learn about the incredibly selfless acts of these Righteous Gentiles.

From Janis Lipke, a man who saved hundreds of Jews by smuggling them out of the ghetto in Riga, Latvia, to Irena Sendler, who saved the lives of at least twenty-five hundred Jewish children in Poland, and Senpo Sugihara, the Japanese official who issued visas that delivered Jews to safety, each hero Toby learns about represents the best of humanity in the face of one of the worst travesties in history.

When Toby returns home to Louisiana, she is surprised to learn about the Righteous Gentiles of Whitwell, Tennessee. These American schoolchildren started an amazing tribute to Holocaust victims, known as the Paper Clip Project.
Accompanied by striking pen-and-ink illustrations, the accounts of courageous men and women from many countries throughout Europe and the world provide important and inspiring lessons in history that will enrich children of any faith.
Hiding Edith tells the true story of Edith Schwalb, a young Jewish Girl sent to live in a safe house after the Nazi invasion of France. Edith's story is remarkable not only for her own bravery, but for the bravery of those that helped her: an entire village, including its mayor and citizenry, heroically conspired to conceal the presence of hundreds of Jewish children who lived in the safe house. The children went to the local school, roamed the streets and ate good food, all withot having to worry about concealing their Jewish identity. And during Nazi raids, the children camped out until the coast was clear.

Intensively researched and sensitively written, this book, illustrated with photographs and maps, both comforts and challenges a young reader's spirit, skillfully addressing both the horrors and hope that children experienced during the Holocaust.

What's the Buzz?: Honey for a Sweet New Year Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword (HB) Sammy Spider's First Shavuot (HB)
Ofanansky and Alpern offer a fresh take on Rosh Hashanah with this picture book tour of a bee farm. Readers follow a children's class as students are shown how bees make honey. Color photographs and a running narrative combine to produce an easy-to-grasp book that is about science but also about culture; honey plays a part in celebrations of Rosh Hashanah, when apples or challah are dipped in the viscous liquid and eaten, symbolizing the wish for a sweet new year. Children who dislike insects may be put off by the pictures of swarms of bees, one of which is the main element on the cover. But young scientists and naturalists will appreciate the detail, and parents and educators will welcome a new way to talk about a familiar holiday Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword

But when her eccentric grandfather Ace hatches a ridiculous plan involving a "practice dog" named OJ, Zelly's not so sure how far she's willing to go to win a dog of her own. Is Ace's plan so crazy it just might work . . . or is it just plain crazy?

Erica S. Perl weaves an affectionate and hilarious tale that captures the enduring bond between grandparents and grandchildren.  Even when they're driving each other nuts.

Cow That Went Oink (HB) Memories of Babi The Power of Song: And Other Sephardic Tales
Cow That Went Oink by Bernard Most Piri is a city girl, but every year she goes to visit her grandmother Babi on her farm in the Ukrainian village of Komjaty. There is a lot that Piri finds strange, even scary, in Komjaty, such as the ghost in the form of a rooster who supposedly haunts the cemetery! But Piri loves country life: making corn bread, eating plums right off the tree, venturing out with her grandmother in the early morning to hunt for mushrooms. And during her time with Babi, Piri learns lessons that will stay with her all of her life, about the importance of honest hard work, of caring for the less fortunate, and of having the courage to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

In these nine stories, Aranka Siegal paints a tender portrait of the love between a grandmother and granddaughter, inspired by her own experiences with her grandmother.

Memories of Babi is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
From Hanina, the daughter of a Jewish tailor who cures a sultans only child by taming a lioness to get her milk, to Nahum Bilbas, the brave rabbi-in-training who dares to confront the great warrior El Cid in order to secure peace for the Jews of Valencia, the folktales in this delightful collection contain lessons, truths, surprises, and happy endings. To add to the readers enjoyment and understanding, each story is accompanied by Roths own commentary on its origin and meaning and a definition of some of the foreign words that appear in the tale. The authors introduction gives a special insight into the history of Jewish folktales and specifically those of the Sephardic Jews. When the Jews fled the Iberian Peninsula in 1492 and scattered all over Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, they took with them the folktales that had become an integral part of their unique heritage. As they settled into their new homelands, they borrowed many of the literary devices and motifs from their adopted countries and added a unique flavor to the traditional Jewish story.

Kaddish for Grandpa in Jesus' Name Amen (HB) Bubbie and Zadie Come to My House The Apple Tree's Discovery
Kaddish for Grandpa in Jesus' Name Amen

by Catherine Stock

This gentle story approaches the subjects of family, grief, and religion as a little girl struggles to come to terms with her grandfather's death. A simple narrative takes readers through five-year-old Emily's thoughts and feelings as she remembers the things she and Grandpa shared and watches her parents and other relatives go through the process and rituals of grieving. Since Grandpa was Christian and Emily and her parents are Jewish (her father converted as an adult), the way each side of the family mourns is very different.
Publishers Weekly
``It's . . . l'chayim!'' and special reasons for rejoicing, the narrator of Bloom's warm story tells us. Julian's brightly colored pictures reflect the happiness in the Jewish home when Bubbie and Zadie arrive on the first night of Hanukkah. The magic grandparents have flown (under their own power) from their tailor shop in Nome, Alaska, to help celebrate the miracle of ancient days. Sharing potato latkes, singing along while the boy and his sister spin the dreidel, Bubbie and Zadie recall with the family the victory of the Maccabees and the small bit of oil that lighted the lamps for eight days. Before soaring off to visit other children around the world, the grandparents promise to return for the holiday each year. Readers who want to write Bubbie and Zadie (who answer all their mail) will find the address in the book. A percentage of the royalties will go to children's hospitals in Israel, Europe and North America.
A familiar "star inside the apple" story is reworked to include the themes of self-worth and confidence, couched in a divine message. Surrounded by large oaks, a lonely little apple tree looks up and sees the twinkling of stars, which appear to be hanging from the tops of the oak branches. With each passing season, she begs God for the same: "I want more than anything in the world to have stars. Then I would feel truly special." Even as her own fragrant blossoms turn into tasty apples, little apple tree persists in her wish, while God encourages patience. It is only after God becomes exasperated and creates a hard wind that forces some apples to fall and split open, revealing their own internal "star," that the little apple tree realizes and happily accepts her own attributes.

Chicken Man Had Gadya: A Passover Song  (HB) Four Thousand Years of Jewish History: Then and Now
Rody is in charge of the chicken coop on the kibbutz where he lives in Israel's Jezreel Valley. He loves his job so much and makes the work seem so delightful that everyone wants a chance to tend the brood. When they do, Rody is transferred elsewhere. But as Rody moves from job to job, the kibbutz learns it's not what you do, but how you do it that makes a difference. Chicken Man is the winner of the 1992 National Jewish Book Award, with delightful illustrations by author Michelle Edwards. The book offers a glimpse into the real life of Israel's kibbutzniks, and this reissued edition includes an updated afterward by the author, discussing modern changes in kibbutz life.

Each time Chicken Man is moved into a new job on the kibbutz, someone else wants to take that job instead, and the chickens suffer as a consequence.

Beautiful Yetta: The Yiddish Chicken

by Daniel Pinkwater

It is acknowledged fact that there are at least two colonies of parrots in Brooklyn, and while I have never seen chickens in Brooklyn, I feel certain that is only because I have now spent very much time there. Anyway, I am willing to go on record that Yetta's story is true, including that she speaks Yiddish!

This picture book brings a light touch and engaging silliness to the story of a prince who rejects the lavish luxury of his upbringing in favor of a life as . . . a rooster. The only person who can persuade the prince to reconsider is neither a doctor nor a magician but a wise teacher who is willing to become a rooster too. Told to the author by her grandmother, who brought it from Eastern Europe a century ago, this traditional tale is accompanied by strikingly witty and graceful illustrations that add their own folkloric flavor.

As Noahs wife sings the animals to sleep, an age-old tale is told afresh in a soothing poetic form brought to life with beautiful collage illustrations.

Naamah is the wife of Noah, and her name means "great singer." For forty days and forty nights, as the ark tosses on storm-wracked seas, Naamah sings. She sings to the animals, two by two. She sings to her husband, her sons, and their wives. She sings, and they all sleep, finally at peace. Acclaimed author Susan Campbell Bartolettis rhythmic, lyrical text pairs with Caldecott Honor winner Holly Meades luminous collage for a cozy, tender lullaby, and an ode to the power of song.

Finally, one morning, Abby hears the long-awaited ping ping ping on the roof. And then something even more wonderful happens.

The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West Yankee at the Seder, HB One Little Chicken
A fresh look at Jewish folktales---wise, witty, hilarious

After finishing school in New York, Rabbi Harvey traveled west in search of adventure and, hopefully, work as a rabbi. His journey took him to Elk Spring, Colorado, a small town in the Rocky Mountains. When he managed to outwit the ruthless gang that had been ruling Elk Spring, the people invited Harvey to stay on as the towns rabbi. In Harveys adventures in Elk Spring, he settles disputes, tricks criminals into confessing, and offers unsolicited bits of Talmudic insight and Hasidic wisdom. Each story presents Harvey with a unique challenge--from convincing a child that he is not actually a chicken, to retrieving stolen money from a sweet-faced bubbe gone bad. Like any good collection of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially, make you laugh.
Yankee at the Seder by Elka Weber How much work can one little chicken be?

When Leora finds a chicken in her front yard, she imagines keeping it as a pet and gathering eggs for breakfast every morning. But her mother has a very different view. Following a Jewish law that says finders arent keepers, Mrs. Bendosa is determined that the family should care for the chicken just until its rightful owner returns. Soon, however, one little chicken becomes a flock of chickens, a flock of chickens becomes two goats, two goats become a herd of goatsuntilOh! What a house!

Elisa Klevens exquisitely detailed folk art brings Elka Webers humorous retelling of a traditional tale to life and promises to leave readers pondering the adage, finders, keepers.

Is Dalias little blue box magicor is the real magic the generosity that helps her fill it?

When Dalia learns about tzedakah, the Jewish tradition of charity and caring, she creates a tzedakah box where she can keep the money shes saved to help those in need.  Her little brother Yossi is curious about the Hebrew letters painted on the box. "Are those letters magic?" he asks. They must be because Dalia tells him she's putting a big yellow comforter, a butterfly bush, and a banana cream pie inside of it! How ever will she do it?


Though there may be joy in receiving, Dalias story serves as a powerful reminder that the greatest joy of all comes from giving generously to others.

Green Bible Stories for Children Engineer Ari and the Hanukkah Mishap (HC) Queen Esther Saves Her People (HB) (OOP)
Beginning with the story of Creation, the Bible teaches us to use and respect the land, conserve natural resources, and save energy. The Bible stories of Noah, Abraham, Joshua and others are retold, and reinforced with activities that will help young readers understand how to nurture and protect the environment. A camel, a train mishap and the holiday of Hanukkah bring together a Bedouin and a Jew in acts of kindness and camaraderie. Children's Literature
Here is an old story beautifully told, and the magnificent illustrations in this book make it truly lovely. The Jews who lived in Persia in Esther's time were almost fully assimilated with their neighbors. But they practiced their own religion, and that would have been their downfall if Esther had not been queen. Esther, chosen (in a beauty contest) as King Ahasueros' queen, was clever as well as beautiful. The evil prime minister, Haman, would have killed all the Jews, but Esther's uncle Mordechai found out about his plans. When Esther told the king that she, too, would have to die, he had Haman hanged. This is a Jewish story, but the Jews of Persia are not lily-white; they are as diverse as their neighbors-very refreshing!

Zishe the Strongman Marcel Marceau: Master of Mime Maccabee! The Story of Hanukkah (HB)
Children's Literature
This true story of Siegmund Breitbart, a poor Polish Jew born in 1883, begins at a climactic point in his life. He is about to attempt to haul a wagon with ten men down New York's Fifth Avenue for half a mile using a strap in his teeth. We then trace his life as the son of a blacksmith, able to swing a nine-pound hammer when he is three. There is little he cannot bend or break by the time he is eleven. But he is also gentle with small animals and fond of playing the cello. He becomes famous for his strength. Soon he is traveling in shows all over Europe and to America. The climax of his story is his success pulling the loaded wagon. He is known as Zishe, the Iron King. His visual story is presented in thick black outline with textured crayon- or chalk-like color. These are scenes appropriate for historical record, with just enough detail to enhance the spare text. For example, a scene showing him "holding tiny mice in his hands" shows a mouse flexing his muscles like Zishe. Additional facts are included, along with a photograph of the actual man. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Children's Literature
As a child, Marcel Marceau enjoys dressing up and performing. A fan of silent movies, he remembers the magic of silence into adulthood. When World War I begins, he and his family must leave their Strasbourg home. Marcel studies art in Limoges, France. As the Nazis take over France and round up Jews, Marcel joins the Resistance and forges identity cards to save children. He also leads groups of children to safety in Switzerland. He continues to perform at a Children's Home. Spotted there, he is sent to study at a drama school, where he learns the almost forgotten art of mime. After the war, as the character Bip, he successfully revives the art of mime. Gautier's sketchy, mixed media illustrations exude innocence. The double-page scenes focus on the characters, and the background is illustrated sparingly. Two final pages show photographs of Bip in action and include explanatory notes that extend the story.

Publishers Weekly
Pre-Passover cleaning gets a fun twist in this rhyming tale. Izzy, an amateur inventor, has created a mothers ultimate dream: a house-cleaning machine, and just in time for Passover. Izzy knows that all the crumbs in his home must be removed before the holiday, and his invention will do just that. All were blown, all were thrown into Izzys machine/A pre-holiday feast for Passover McClean. McClean hits a snag, however, when the machine malfunctions right after it has inhaled the entire living room for cleaning, but before it has spit it back out, dirt free. Izzy must then use his inventors mind to make things right hours before the holiday begins. Kids will appreciate the easy rhyming scheme and bold pictures, and wish that they could invent their own Passover cleaning machine.

Papa Jethro

by Deborah Bodin Cohen, Jane Dippold
A very accessible, simple explanation of a very complex religion. Aware of the many books that Jews use for study and enlightenment, Wood emphasizes "the most important book," the Torah, which is also "the most important part of the Scriptures." The "most important place for Jews to practice their religion" is the home. The Shema is "one of the most important Jewish prayers." "The most important day of the Jewish week" is called Shabbat. One sidebar explains that while believing and belonging are important in Jewish life, the "most important thing is behaving." There is a lovely double-page spread containing explanations of the most important lifecycle eventsbirth, bar/bat mitzvah, marriage, and deathand how these are celebrated. A couple of nice easy crafts can be good projects for almost any age reader either in a classroom or a family. A glossary and a really good index round out the book.

Ten Amazing People (HC) Gershon's Monster: A Story for the Jewish New Year Harpist of Granada HB
This vivid, inspirational, and authoritative book will open new possibilities for children by telling the stories of how ten of the past century's greatest leaders changed the world in important ways. Gershon and his wife live on the shores of the Black Sea "many years ago" in this retelling of a very old Hasidic legend. Gershon has made mistakes in his life, but never regretted or apologized. He has simply swept the bad deeds into the cellar. Once a year, on Rosh Hashanah, he bags them and tosses them into the sea. But "there is always a price to pay." When Gershon and his wife finally have the twin children they have wanted for so long, he is warned that he will lose them because of his thoughtlessness. A monster from the sea threatens the children, so Gershon offers himself instead, finally sorry for his wickedness. Winter's night, 11th century Spain.  Young Shmuel Abinoam has lost his family & home & his wandering through streets of Granada.  Suddenly, he is drawn to sweet melody of harp, floating from open window.

Irena's Jars of Secrets Where the Sidewalk Ends (HB) Around the World in One Shabbat: Jewish People Celebrate the Sabbath Together
Irena Sendler, born to a Polish Catholic family, was raised to respect people of all backgrounds and to help those in need. She became a social worker; and after the German army occupied Poland during World War II, Irena knew she had to help the sick and starving Jews who were imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto. She began by smuggling food, clothing, and medicine into the ghetto, then turned to smuggling children out of the ghetto. Using false papers and creative means of escape, and at great personal risk, Irena helped rescue Jewish children and hide them in safe surroundings. Hoping to reunite the children with their families after the war, Irena kept secret lists of the children's identities.

Motivated by conscience and armed with compassion and a belief in human dignity, Irena Sendler confronted an enormous moral challenge and proved to the world that an ordinary person can accomplish deeds of extraordinary courage.

Can Hens Give Milk? Boy Behind the Door  PB Hidden Treasures: Jewish Holiday Picture Puzzles (HB)
Tova lives with her family on a small farm in the famous town of Chelm, a mythical village populated, according to Jewish folklore, by fools.
Tova's farm has hens and even a rooster, but no cow. Her mother, Rivka, wishes they could afford to buy a cow, so they could have fresh milk and butter every day. One night Tova's father has a dream about how to get milk without actually owning a cow. He asks Tova to help him find a way to get milk from their hens, and the results are hilarious. Finally, to the family's joy and the hens' relief, the problem is solved by none other than the wise Rabbi of Chelm himself, and a little extra help from Tova.
