Here Is the World | Little Lit Book Series

This month we’re featuring books about culinary traditions.

Here Is the World is a lovely and meaningful walk through the year of Jewish holidays and their associated food traditions — from eating apples and honey to ensure a sweet year during Rosh Hashannah to celebrating the harvesting of the wheat and the ripening of the first fruit on Shauvot.  Clear and informative explanations about each holiday are found in the back matter.

Here Is the World: A Year of Jewish Holidays was written by Lesléa Newman, illustrated by Susan Gal and published by Abrams Books for Young Readers.
