What child would not be delighted by the story of bewildering matzoballs, miraculous latkes, unusual guests to a Bar Mitzvah, and a dog with a mysterious and exciting history? These are the contents of Cynthia Goren's "Tales from a Jewish Grandmother." In this collection, two stories for the very young and two for the older child subtly but convincingly stress the importance of respect and patience both for each other and for all of nature. The whimsy of the earlier stories will bring giggles to the younger set; the more serious and nuanced later stories will provide the thought and substance needed by an older child. Sprinkled with love and faith, heritage, and peoplehood, this anthology illustrates, above all, the Jewish child's thirst for the beautiful traditions of Judaism. "This delightful anthology of stories, suitable for children of varying ages, will open a child's eyes, heart, and mind to his or her connection to the dynamic and thriving culture of the Jewish people." -Danny A. Brass, DVM Book Reviewer for the National Speleological Society and Choice Magazine
