Measuring a Year: A Rosh Hashanah Story
From award-winning author Linda Elovitz Marshall and illustrator Zara González Hoang comes this engaging picture book about celebrating Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mark the beginning of the Jewish New Year. They offer a chance to think about the present and the past, to “measure” a year and ourselves. This sweet and thoughtful picture book, perfect for reading aloud, invites young readers and their families to take stock of the happy times and the occasional regrets, as well as the new friends made and new skills gained over the year. Happy New Year! Shana Tova!
Linda Elovitz Marshall has been a sheep farmer, early childhood educator, anthropologist, and indie bookstore owner. Her books have been Sydney Taylor Notable Award winners, as well as Junior Library Guild, PJ Library, and National Science Teacher Association selections. She and her husband raised their family in a 250-year-old farmhouse in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Zara González Hoang is the illustrator of several picture books. She grew up in a little bungalow in the frozen tundra of Minnesota. Surrounded by snow, she spent her days dreaming, doodling, and listening to the colourful stories of her dad’s life growing up in Puerto Rico while navigating her place as a Puerto Rican Jew in a sea of Scandinavians. (She’s still figuring that out.) These days, she lives outside of Washington, D.C., with her husband, their kids, and a curly coated corgi named Ziggy.
