Papa's Latkes

Jane Breskin Zalben; Illustrated by the Author

Square Fish

This Chanukah Mama is tired of making latkes. So Papa’s in charge! "Let’s have a latke contest," says Papa. But Rosie adds too many potatoes to her latkes, and Max’s latkes are so oily they slip right off his plate. Then Papa comes to their rescue. His latkes are perfect—and there are plenty to fill everyone’s tummies. Celebrate the holiday with Max, Sara, Beni, and their lovable bear family.

REVIEWS

Praise for Papa's Latkes

"Zalben’s books are not all sugar and spice. In each story the family celebrates the holidays while experiencing routine family dramas like sibling rivalry, anxiety, about being in a class play or the comical outcome of children’s first attempts at cooking." —Publishers Weekly

"Not only do we get the story of what happens when it’s father’s turn to fry up the potato pancakes, but you get the recipe too!" —Newsday

"Another in Zalben’s growing list of holiday books about Beni the Bear . . . Zalben adds a touch of light comedy to the story, which concludes with the family’s gathering to enjoy a few other holiday traditions with their pancake feast. . . .Homey and beautifully executed." —Booklist

"The adorable illustrations and the bears’ holiday story fire up young imaginations." —The Miami Herald
