9780874418507: It's Too Crowded in Here!

Evolving from the oral tradition that gave us Torah and Talmud, folktales illuminate and reinforce the lessons of our heritage. We tell them to entertain our children, and also to pass on our values.

It s Too Crowded in Here! is a collection of Jewish folktales and midrashic stories in this spirit, enlivened by colorful illustrations. Fun just to read aloud with children, the stories also provide a rich yet light-hearted resource for exploring key values such as self respect, compassion, appreciation, tolerance, and thankfulness.

Resource pages after each story provide some brief background linking the story with its underlying message and connecting it to sources in Jewish tradition. Appropriate for any background or level of Jewish knowledge, these supplemental notes, together with a few open-ended questions and activity suggestions based on each story, can help those who would like to lead children through a deeper exploration of each story.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Eight folktales and midrashic stories retold to engage young children.

Values message articulated for each story and expressed in language children can understand.

Resource pages after each story provide references that place each value in its Jewish context, and tips for helping children understand them.

About the Author:

Hector was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he currently resides with his wife Silvana and daughter, Micaela. He had initially studied to become a lawyer but found his true passion was illustration. He began his career as a graphic designer and then eventually developed into an illustrator. Hector published his first illustration in Argentina at age 19. His work has appeared in advertising campaigns, magazines, newspapers and textbooks in several countries including Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Mexico. In 2002, Hector decided to pursue the American market and during his first visit to NY, he landed a series of books for Scholastic. While not illustrating, Hector enjoys playing soccer and perfecting his tango.

Review:

There is a wonderful tradition on Chanukah. While the candles are burning, no work should be done. No tidying up, no cooking, no laundry. We stop as a family and enjoy the moment, with the Chanukiot in the background.

This year, while the candles are burning, you and your family can be reading.

Just in time for Chanukah, a new Jewish-values book has been released. It's Too Crowded in Here! by Vicki L. Weber retells Jewish folktales in a way that is both engaging and accessible for children. The eight stories (in my mind, one for each night of Chanukah) take us back to different times and places throughout Jewish history. We meet kings and rabbis, noblemen and peasants, each learning or teaching a valuable lesson.

While the illustrations throughout the book are wonderful, what distinguishes this book from myriad other Jewish books is the resource page at the end of each story. The page takes the lesson taught in the story and expands on it showing us Jewish sources, asking guided value questions, even offering a few creative ideas for your family. The stories stand well on their own: the resource page simply offers up additional teachable moments. --Challah Crumbs
