The Groundhog Day Book of Facts and Fun
Wendie C. Old

Oct 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 2-5 - Billin-Frye's illustrations are so engaging that readers may, at first glance, think that this is a simple picture book. However, the table of contents and densely packed pages of text tell a different story. The first chapter opens with a detailed description of an early morning scene on February 2 in Punxsutawney, PA: the crowds, the fireworks, the music, and the magical moment when the Groundhog Handler reaches into an artificial tree stump, rudely awakens furry Phil, and "listens" to his prediction. The writing sometimes succeeds at being lighthearted, but it's heavy going when the author uses words like "prognosticator," "verdict," and "groundhogeese." The high point of one chapter is the color-splashed painting of a happy, dancing crowd; a smiling man is holding aloft a puzzled groundhog...

Kosher for the Clueless but Curious : A Fun, Fact-Filled, and Spiritual Guide to All Things Kosher
Shimon Apisdorf
1881927318
November 15, 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ever wondered what makes kosher food kosher? Why is keeping kosher important to Jews, anyway-does God really care what we eat? Apisdorf, an Orthodox rabbi, has the answers. With a sense of humor and a light touch, he lays out the basics of the Jewish dietary laws-what foods (like pork, snails and shrimp) are forbidden; how to tell if prepared food bought at the store is kosher. He dispels many myths about the Jewish dietary laws. For example, contrary to popular belief, "kosher" does not mean that food has been blessed by a rabbi. Apisdorf also addresses pastoral questions, gently suggesting that Jews who want to start keeping kosher don't take on all the dietary laws at once: they should begin by cutting out one non-kosher food, and gradually move toward a more complete observance of the whole dietary code....
