Sorry...accidentally sent this as an email before (you can ignore if you already received this), but I wanted to make sure to get this up...

 

As a Chanukah present, my wonderful sister sent me _Encyclopedia of Jewish Food_. It's AMAZING! So much fun, even if just to read! Not only are there wonderful recipes, but the book is about the history, origins, and development of Jewish food and techniques of cooking. A must have for the even-remotely-serious Jewish cook!

Has anyone ever seen books for children by Amy Krouse Rosenthal? They aren't specifically Jewish books, but they teach middos and positive attitudes in hilarious ways. There's a trio called Little Hoot, Little Pea, and Little Oink about, respectively, going to bed early, eating your veggies, and cleaning your room. There are also middos-vocabulary builders, etc. all about cookies. They are guaranteed to make you and your kids giggle.

I just read an amazing book, The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. No, it is not a Jewish book, but if you have a grandma, mom or mother-in-law who is a widow, it's a moving and useful read. Ms. Didion tells the story of her husband's sudden death after nearly 40 years of marriage, her daughter's tragic illness, and how she coped and failed to cope through that first year and beyond. I have so much more insight into my widowed family members now...my husband actually has read it on my recommendation (he hardly ever reads anything not Jewish unless it's about parenting or teaching), and found it helpful, too. Also, it's amazingly well-written, which you can't say about most books.
