The Challah Girl by Bracha K. Sharp, Anita Tung
Illustrator: Anita Tung
In a faraway village, can anyone make the royal prince smile?
Zlatah Leah is a capable girl, talented in many things. One day, she joins her village’s effort to make the prince smile again and takes her challah-baking expertise to the royal palace. She is sure that she has just what it takes to turn things around, but after nothing seems to work, she wonders if anyone at all can succeed. Can she?
The Challah Girl is a beautifully illustrated Jewish folktale about the power of prayer and tears that the whole family can enjoy.
