About this title

Synopsis:

The stories we hear in childhood usually from parents and grandparents, teachers and caregivers teach us the values, faith, culture, and traditions of those we love most. They nourish our sense of wonder and curiosity about the world. That’s what this brand-new series aims to achieve, and it is our hope that children and their families will explore these wonderful tales together. Each book, filled with evocative artwork and a cast of unforgettable characters, will bring a little magic into a child’s world.
The first volume, The Hungry Clothes & Other Jewish Folktales, presents a diverse selection of Ashkenazi and Sephardic fairytales, legends, parables, fables, tall tales, trickster and fool tales, and supernatural and mystical stories. They include The Pots of Honey, which teaches the importance of both justice and forgiveness; The Boy Who Prayed with the Alphabet, about an unlearned boy who finds a unique way to express his love for God; and The Wise Daughter Who Solves Riddles, one of the most beloved stories in the Jewish tradition.  

From Booklist:

True to Jewish tradition in all its rich diversity, this collection of 22 stories, the first book in the new Folktales of the World series, includes tall tales, riddle stories, parables, trickster tales, mystical tales, and more, retold in a direct, informal style that makes them wonderful for storytelling and reading aloud. A beautiful, spacious design and occasional handsome illustrations make the book equally successful for independent reading. Schram points out in her introduction that all the tales carry a message that resonates with Jewish values, and each brief story headnote reveals the message hidden therein. But there’s plenty of wry fun to balance the lessons and also spark laughter and discussion. Kids will enjoy the crisp arguments, the foolishness of people of Chelm, and the vivid particulars. A glossary and detailed source notes are appended.. Grades 5-8. --Hazel Rochman
