The Family Treasury of Jewish Holidays
By Malka Drucker
Illustrated by Nancy Patz
Celebrate the Jewish Holidays with this rich compendium of facts, activities, and stories from around the world. Intended for the entire family, each of the ten holiday chapters introduces the reader to a wealth of history and ritual surrounding the holidays, a read a-loud selection by such favorite authors as Isaac Bashevis Singer and Barbara Cohen, and a related song, recipe, or craft. With this unique anthology, families will enjoy acting out the story of Esther for Purim, baking challah for Shabbat, building a sukkah, and much, much more.
Nancy Patz’s lavish illustrations depict holiday celebrations throughout history and across the world; they make this a most comprehensive and handsome holiday treasury.
