Discovered Claire A. Nivola at the Carle Museum. Read Emma's Poem to second- and third-graders at my school library, played an audio recording of part of the poem ("The New Colossus") set to music, and asked them to write their own welcome messages to new arrivals. Good for Jewish American Heritage month (May).

The title and subtitle tell you exactly what to expect: a Passover-themed retelling of Stone Soup.

Stone Soup has never been one of my favorite stories, but Stone Soup with Matzoh Balls is much better than most. Most notably, the illustrations are colorful and cheery--I want to live in Chelm with these characters. For that reason alone, I'd recommend Stone Soup with Matzoh Balls over the many other Stone Soup variations out there.

The Passover theme is an added bonus; I appreciate any book that can add some diversity to my shelves and greater cultural understanding to its readers. I didn't know anything about the fictional town of Chelm before reading Glaser's book, but I'm intrigued by the concept now and will be looking into more references to Chelm in literature.

Note: I received a digital galley of this book through NetGalley.

Latkes are one of my favorite foods. This is a decent book about a messy little girl and the nice old lady next door. Not super religious, so a good introduction to the concept of Hanukkah for our not super religious household.
