Chelm for the Holidays by Valerie Estelle Frankel
Illustrator: Sonja Wimmer
Celebrating Jewish holidays has never been sillier than in Chelm, the Village of Fools! While the Chelmites try to solve problems―like outsmarting bees to get Rosh Hashanah honey, and keeping menorah candles lit without enough oil―their foolishness causes even more chaos. Enjoy these tall tales, old and new, one for each of ten holidays throughout the Jewish year.
