Today, Lori talks about some of the PJ Library books that contain Yiddish words and phrases. Do you recognize any of these or have a favorite Yiddish saying you remember?

Sweet story.

The Jewish value of hakarat hatov means "noticing the good." Taking the time to stop and be aware of life's joys is the theme of this story, in which Baby and Savta (Hebrew for “grandmother”) enjoy the simple pleasures of an outdoor stroll and a bubbly bath.

Enjoy this special animated version of "Listen," written by by Lina Schwarz and illustrated by Patrice Barton.
