Description



Book Synopsis



This sweet, rhyming, beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates Jewish joy and intergenerational love as it follows a girl and her grandmother preparing for Shabbat dinner by baking traditional challah from scratch.

A little girl and her grandmother spend Friday afternoon preparing for Shabbat by making challah.

In hours full of laughter and love, they mix the ingredients, braid the dough, let it rise, and set the table, and finally, enjoy a scrumptious family dinner and the bread they made together.

Told through Sara Holly Ackerman's musical, rhyming verse and Alona Millgram's rich, whimsical art, Challah for Shabbat Tonight will warm readers' hearts and fill their bellies as they celebrate Jewish joy, familial love, and kitchen magic.

A challah recipe is included in the back for those who want to bake along.



Review Quotes




"Playful illustrations reflect the joy in both flurries of activity and periods of rest. The sweet, comforting rhyming couplets scan smoothly, making for a pleasant read-aloud... A quiet celebration of the cultural and family rituals that feed us, in all kinds of ways."--Kirkus Reviews
