"Anna, an introspective, creative, and self-deprecating young girl finds herself lacking compared to her elegant and fashionable mother. Contemplating her motherís exciting escapades, she thinks of herself as not as creative, not as caring, and not as much fun.
Annaís devoted mother delights in celebrating with special food, whether for Rosh Hashanah, the last day of school, or a cousinís third birthday. The two of them take many outings to Mr. Reubenís Market, a fancy food emporium that sells old-world Jewish products: babka, smoked fish, rugelach, olives, pickles, and more.
On one of their market excursions, Anna sees a hungry man on the street and is inspired to begin a tzedakah project to help him. Through this experience she discovers an intrinsic connection to her idealized mother; maybe they arenít so different, after all.
The illustrations, especially of Mr. Reubenís Market, are delightful. The story opens up many possible discussion topics: the meaning of tzedakah, enduring poverty and how to help people in need, family dynamics, and the importance of food in family rituals.
Recommended for ages 3 to 8." - Jewish Book Council
