I'm reminded of the Richard Scarry books in which animals cheerfully contemplate the array of foods made from their own species.

Are you familiar with the 21 steps to the proper preparation of gefilte fish?

Genevieve-- it might not be in the anthology. It's a bigger format and longer book than most of Zalben's Jewish Holiday titles, and I think it just stands on its own. There are a few other books about Pearl's family, too.

Ha. Poor sheepies.

It is funny what seems weird to us in children's books, but other folks don't seem to notice.

I had an awkward moment yesterday in storytime where I lost my sheet with the day's fingerplays on it, and had to improvise. It was a large group, so I decided to go with the crowd pleaser Three Little Monkeys. However, the topic of the day was food. This brought the disturbing factor of this song up quite a bit. But kids love the song...it is like suitable horror for 2 year olds. Whats a librarian to do?

sitting in a tree,
teasing Mr. Crocodile,
"you can't catch me"!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile
with his mouth open wide,
one little monkey down inside...
