On The Book of Life, we talk a lot about Jewish kidlit. But where do you go to find Jewish children's books? In this episode, Marjorie Ingall joins me to talk about how to discover and how to access the best Jewish kidlit. Marjorie is a columnist at Tablet Magazine and is well-known for her year-end "best of Jewish kidlit" lists, and she's the author of Mamaleh Knows Best: What Jewish Mothers Do to Raise Successful, Creative, Empathetic, Independent Children, which was featured on The Book of Life in April 2017.
Among other things, Marjorie and I discussed our favorite Hanukkah books, and I am pleased to announce that The Book of Life is co-sponsoring the 2019 #Readukkah Jewish Reading Challenge!
The Association of Jewish Libraries & The Book of Life / Jewish Kidlit Mavens & the Jewish Book Council present the fourth annual reading challenge for readers of all ages, #Readukkah!
