What tricks does the dybbuk have up his ghostly sleeve? Prepare to be astonished. . . .

Gustave doesn't want to move from the exciting city to the boring countryside, far from his cousin Jean-Paul and his best friend, the mischievous Marcel. But he has no choice. It is March of 1940, and Paris is not a safe place for Jews.
When Paris is captured by the Nazis, Gustave knows that Marcel, Jean-Paul, and their families must make it out of the occupied zone. And when he learns that his new friend Nicole works for the French Resistance, he comes up with a plan that just might work. But going into Occupied France is a risky thing to do when you are Jewish.

by Anne Frank, Mirjam Pressler, Miriam Pressler

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been read by tens of millions of people all over the world.

She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.

Clara's War Incantation, a story of Marano Jews in Inquisition Spain When I Was a Soldier
Review  Lu Ann Brobst Staheli

A refreshingly different look at Jewish life in a concentration camp, Clara's War focuses on the positive attitude of people forced from their homes at the hands of Nazi Germany. The children continue to make friends, learn, and perform a children's opera. Fictional characters bring to life actual events from Terezin, one of many ghetto communities where Jews were taken prior to being shipped off to Hitler's death camps. Upon arrival at Terezin, Clara and her brother Peter are separated from their parents. Scared and desperate, Clara reaches out to a newfound friend, Jacob, an ambitious young man who is busy working on an escape plan. Meanwhile, young Clara attends the ghetto school, and wins the part of the lovely sparrow in the school play, "Brundibar". Jacob, anxious to conceal his escape plans, earns a role in the play, as well. Together, they enjoy each other's company, all the while planning for their escape. Clara's War is a nice companion to Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. It is another example of the sheer power of human will to overcome even the most horrible of human events. 2001, Orca Book Publishers, 128 pp.,

The Diary of a Anne Frank (PB) God Book: A Necessarily Incomplete Look at the Essence of God (PB) So Punk Rock  (PB)
In Everymans Library for the first timeone of the most moving and eloquent accounts of the Holocaust, read by tens of millions of people around the world since its publication in 1947.

The Diary of a Young Girl is the record of two years in the life of a remarkable Jewish girl whose triumphant humanity in the face of unfathomable deprivation and fear has made the book one of the most enduring documents of our time.

The Everymans hardcover edition reprints the Definitive Edition authorized by the Frank estate, plus a new introduction, a bibliography, and a chronology of Anne Franks life and times.

The journal of a Jewish girl in her early teens describes both the joys and torments of daily life, as well as typical adolescent thoughts, throughout two years spent in hiding with her family during the Nazi occupation of Holland.
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."

But after a one-song gig at a friend's Bar Mitzvah - a ska cover of Hava Nagila - the Tribe's popularity erupts overnight.

But as the women bustle from the dressmaker to the haberdasher, Mr. Samuel Lyon, a well-respected clockmaker and member of London's Jewish elite, suffers a crushing blow.  In the blink of an eye Mr. Lyon's entire fortune is lost.

The Lyons are on the verge of despair when help arrives from an unexpected source: Mr. Ezra Melamed, wealthy widower and benefactor of Londons Jewish community. Anxious to help Mr. Lyon recover his fortune, Mr. Melamed goes beyond London's fashionable streets to search for clues in the darkest places. With only a key, a button, and a few cryptic words from a Chassidic Rebbe to guide him, can Mr. Melamed restore the disappearing dowry to its rightful owners...before the Lyon family faces total ruin?

Through the Flames of Aleppo

by A. Shalom, Meir Zlotowitz, Scherman Nossom, Tova Katz
Publishers Weekly Review:
Matas offers a powerful account of a young Jewish girl who fights back after the Germans invade Denmark in 1940. Lisa, 12, and her brother Stefan join the Danish resistance when the Germans invade Copenhagen. Stefan is deeply involved in the movement, undertaking missions to sabotage German-run factories, while Lisa and her friend Susanne distribute pamphlets published by the resistance. When Susanne's parents are killed by the Germans, Lisa, too, becomes as involved as Stefan. Over the three-year period that this book documents, thousands of Danish Jews must flee their country to save themselves; Lisa and Stefan risk their own lives helping hundreds of Jews escape safely to Sweden. Lisa describes her experiences in the first - person present tense, creating a potent immediacy. Through the riveting narration, the rising tension in the country is effectively conveyed. An unsettling, important novel. Ages 12-up.

Jewish Humor Stories for Kids: An Anthology of Short Stories

by Irmela Wendt, Harold I. Mathis, Antoni Boratynski

An anthology of short stories. Here are four original stories that have three age old ingredients guaranteed to make you laugh: hilarious dialogue, funny situations and comical characters. Included is the award winning Breakfast Without Bagels by the Association of Jewish Librarian's Choice Award, which tells the story of a middle America family who go too far out lengths to keep their Jewishness intact.
Being the sibling of a child with special needs has its own unique challenges that often go unrecognized, unseen ... especially when the disability itself is invisible.As the typical sister, Morasha Winokur candidly shares her story about the invisible life that exists within a life that others think they know. Hidden dreams and hidden challenges become understood and embraced when a specially trained Behavioral Assistance Dog for Morashas brother joins the family. This is the fourth in the "Stories For Kids" series and follows on the heels of the successful humor and science fiction volumes (both in their second printings), and the detective volume. 2) This is the first book of love stories with Jewish themes for this market and fills a gap that has existed for years.

Whose Bar/Bat Mitzvah Is This Anyway? Kid's Guide to Service Projects 100 Things Guys Need to Know
ou're in the process of planning your child's bar or bat mitzvah and unanticipated issues keep threatening the joy of this "joyous occasion."

Maybe you're divorced and you and your ex are fighting over how much this is all going to cost, never mind how you're going to handle the public awkwardness.

Or maybe your spouse isn't Jewish and the whole question of religious meaning is coming up all over again.

Or maybe you're worrying about your relatives' disapproval. They're from the city, and your plans for an informal party in the backyard will never meet their expectations.

You are in the thick of a complex and pressured moment in your life, sandwiched between the needs of your emerging teenager and your aging parents, dealing with your own issues about being old enough to be the parent of a Bar/Bat Mitzvah (you were always the kid at these affairs, weren't you?), while trying to orchestrate your child's formal coming-of-age in the Jewish community. What would be crazy is if you weren't feeling stressed...

For well over a decade, family therapist Judith Davis, Ed.D., has been studying the meaning of the bar/bat mitzvah in the lives of contemporary American Jewish families. In this wise and witty book, the first to focus on the psychological and development issues of the bar/bat mitzvah year, Dr. Davis shows you exactly what you can do to create magic and meaning for the whole family.

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.

Motherland: Beyond the Holocaust: A Mother-Daughter Journey to Reclaim the Past Zig Zag Kid (PB) Race Beat (PB)
One woman's moving story of her journey with her mother to find their past and the tragedy that haunts it

In 1937, Edith Westerfeld's parents--before being killed by the Nazis--sent her from Germany to live with relatives in America. Fifty-four years later, Edith decided that it was time to, with her grown daughter Fern, revisit the town she had left so many years before. For Edith the trip was a chance to reconnect and reconcile with her past; for Fern it was a chance to learn what lay behind her mother's silent grief. On their journey, Fern and her mother shared many extraordinary encounters with the townspeople and--more importantly--with one another, closing the divide that had long stood between them.

Anya's War  (HB) Queen of Secrets Black Radishes
Anya Rosen and her family have left their home in Odessa for Shanghai, believing that China will be a safe haven from Hitlers forces. At first, Anyas life in the Jewish Quarter of Shanghai is privileged and relatively carefree: she has crushes on boys, fights with her mother, and longs to defy expectations just like her hero, Amelia Earhart.

Then Anya finds a babya newborn abandoned on the street. Amelia Earhart goes missing. And it becomes dangerously clear that no place is safenot for Jewish families like the Rosens, not for Shanghais poor, not for adventurous women pilots.

Based on a true story, here is a rich, transcendent novel about a little-known time in Holocaust history.
This year, Essie Greens life is going to be different. Shes made the cheerleading squad and caught the eye of the captain of the football team. However, she didn't expect her estranged cousin to join the football team. Micah is instantly branded a freak for praying during games, and Essie doesnt want anything to do with him. As the football teams teasing of Micah shifts into hazing, Essie is forced to make a choice between the boy she might love and the cousin she barely knows. A fresh take on the WWII/Holocaust story, Black Radishes is the suspenseful tale of one boy who learns what it means to be both Jewish and French at a time when everything is changing.

Gustave doesn't want to move from the exciting city to the boring countryside, far from his cousin Jean-Paul and his best friend, the mischievous Marcel. But he has no choice. It is March of 1940, and Paris is not a safe place for Jews.
When Paris is captured by the Nazis, Gustave knows that Marcel, Jean-Paul, and their families must make it out of the occupied zone. And when he learns that his new friend Nicole works for the French Resistance, he comes up with a plan that just might work. But going into Occupied France is a risky thing to do when you are Jewish. And coming back alive? That is nearly impossible.

The Story of the Jews: A 4,000-Year Adventure-a Graphic History Book The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West Rabbi Harvey Rides Again (PB)
Beginning with Abraham and Sarah, celebrated artist Stan Mack takes us on a rewarding pictorial
journey across 4,000 years of Jewish history, through its ups and downs. From the biblical era to the twentieth century, with Mack's signature wit and delightful sketches, we witness Moses receiving the Ten Commandments, the world's first "oy," the creation of the Talmud, the Crusades, the Holocaust, the birth of the Israeli state, the evolution of the stand-up comic, and much more. In addition, we meet the men and women who have shaped the Jewish experience, including Maimonides, Theodor Hertzl, Irving Berlin, and Golda Meier. An illustrated narrative that celebrates the major characters and events that built this enduring culture, The Story of the Jews is a first of its kind and worthy of a sincere mazel tov.
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.

The Life and Opinions of Amy Finawitz

By Laura Toffler-Corrie

Amy Finawitz is having a rough year. Her best friend, Callie, has abandoned their awesome life in New York City to stay with relatives in Kansas. So now, while Callie is going for hayrides with boys named Bucky and getting in touch with her inner organic farmer, Amy is stuck hanging out with geeky girls who knit, eating Mr. Lee's Chinese food at a table for one and crushing on hottie John Leibler all by herself.

Told in wry emails and brilliant one-act plays, this laugh-out-loud novel offers quirky characters, tour around New York City, and an appealing story about what it means to be a friend.
Living a Life That Matters by Harold S. Kushner,

Most of us need to feel that we matter in some way; perhaps this explains the high value placed on titles, corner offices, and even fleeting celebrity. But most of us also need to feel that we are good people. In this luminous yet practical book of spiritual advice, Harold Kushner bridges the gap between these seemingly irreconcilable needs, showing us how even our smallest daily actions can become stepping stones toward integrity.
It was the Freedom Summer of 1964. Civil rights workers Mickey Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney were driving through rural Mississippi. When a police cruiser flashed its lights behind them, they hesitated. Were these law-abiding officers or members of the Ku Klux Klan? Should they pull over or try to outrun their pursuers? The last day in the lives of these courageous young men is relived in this gripping story.

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. In 1930s Berlin, a Jewish boy forms an unlikely bond with a boxing champion who ultimately becomes a Nazi, affecting their friendship and their boxing.  A Sydney Taylor award winner for older readers.

Bomb HB Praise Her Works Take Me to the Holy Land (HB)
In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.
