This festive parody reimagines a classic bedtime book as a lively Jewish family gathering complete with bubbe and zeyde, a dreidel, and a shmear on a bagel. Includes an exclusive latke recipe by Ina Garten, TVs Barefoot Contessa!
In the small blue room there was a bubbala, and a little shmatta, and then—oy vey!—came the whole mishpacha!
This zesty parody of one of Americas favorite picture books offers a very different bedtime routine: one that is full of family exuberance and love. Instead of whispers of “hush,” this bedtime includes dancing and kvelling, and of course, noshing—because this little bunny is a Jewish bunny, and this joyous book celebrates the Jewish values of cherishing your loved ones, expressing gratitude, and being generous.
Filled with Yiddish words, the book includes a phonetic glossary and even an easy latke recipe by beloved cookbook author Ina Garten, who calls the book “brilliant, beautiful, important, and so much fun!”
