"An oasis of Jewish joy." —School Library Journal

Baked with love! A family mixes, kneads, braids, and bakes bread for dinner with Grandma and Grandpa in this joyful, rhyming story.

Inspired by memories author Charlotte Offsay and illustrator Jason Kirschner have of baking Challah with their children, Challah Day celebrates the sweetness of sharing homemade food as a family.

Yeast and sugar - water’s warm,
mix and watch those bubbles form!
Crack the eggs – one… two… three… four
Extra if some hit the floor.

This read aloud can be a joyful introduction to a new culture or a cozy way to celebrate a familiar one. Perfect for any occasion as a holiday gift or the start of a new weekly tradition.

In the back of the book, read about the cultural importance of Challah and Jewish traditions. A Challah recipe is included.

"It’s time to make the challah, and this loving Jewish family is ready for a day of fun."—Kirkus Reviews
