Synopsis

Moishe's Miracle by Laura Krauss Melmed

Reviews

A MOO-raculous book. It will put you in the MOO-d for the holidays.

This entertainingly illustrated tale unwinds itself and reveals the meaning of Hanukkah.

A nifty parable understated, funny, with sharp characterizations automatically caught on the page by Slonim's flourishing, clever art, matching the tone perfectly.

This warm-hearted, appealing folktale tells of a latter-day Hanukkah miracle that befalls a poor milkman, Moishe, and his short-tempered wife, Baila. David Slonim's vibrant paintings of the Old World town of Wishniak and its inhabitants add immeasurably to the charm of author Melmed's suspenseful cautionary tale. A worthy Hanukkah gift.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
