It's not worth making a tzimmes over May 11, 2006
Ms. Rosenthal came to visit my son's school today. She is a former attorney turned children's author, and it seems she likes her new profession so much more! Thank you for enriching the lives of our children. A Brandeis Hillel Day School mom

by Liz S.
Sara and Grandma Strauss have a big "blob-lem" when their challah dough grows and grows to take over the kitchen, house and neighborhood in "It's Not Worth Making a Tzimmes Over!" by Betsy Rosenthal. Sara admits to accidentally adding a little extra yeast-- 54 extra packets, to be exact-- to the dough, but Grandma is unfazed: "It's not worth making a tzimmes over." Sprinkled with Yiddish expressions (defined at the end of the book), this charming tale will keep young readers turning the pages to discover how Sara and her grandmother solve this expanding problem.
Wonderful read... Mar 29, 2006
I've read this book to my daughter a number of times already, yet she keeps asking for me to read it again and again....she particularly loves as the challah grows bigger and bigger...the book is charming, well written and the illustrations are lively and eye-catching. Check out the challah recipe...it really works!
