In Jewish families (like many others), food is sacred—and a wonderful way to express love. Many families in America are familiar with Italian and Chinese delicacies; however, how many are familiar with Jewish fare? In 1, 2, 3, Nosh With Me, authors and spouses Micah and Joshua Siva offer a fun romp through traditional Jewish foods with an educational twist for toddlers, preschoolers, and early readers—and their admirers! Following Buckwheat, a very hungry and curious dog, kids will turn the pages and count a variety of “yummy in the tummy” treats—matzo balls, bagels, kugels, knishes, and more. While practicing their numbers, from one golden challah to celebrate Shabbat to ten crispy latkes served by candlelight on Hanukkah, little ones will be introduced to cherished Jewish foods rich in cultural meaning.
Featuring catchy text and lively full-color illustrations, 1, 2, 3, NOSH WITH ME is the perfect book for moms, dads, bubbies, papas, aunties, and other grown-ups to read to their favorite tots—over and over again. Hungry for more? The book wraps up with Micah’s trusted Simple Challah recipe, with illustrated instructions for how to braid or coil the challah, with additional creative ideas for toppings.
