Title: Grandpa for Sale

Title: Grandpa for Sale


Authors: Dotti Enderle and


Vicki Sansum


Publisher: Flashlight Press


 


 


      Little Lizzy is dusting her mom’s antiques store and Grandpa’s snoozing head when a pink and piqued Mrs. Larchmont strides inside the shop. Seizing a silk pillow, a vase and a lamp she “simply cannot live without,” the woman in rhinestone glasses and wearing very tall hair begins to pay for her purchases and proves she is no lady!

 

      Mrs. Larchmont cradles a fuzzy poodle, mimicking his owner’s unpleasant facial and personality features, while she pressures Lizzy to name her price for the elderly man sleeping on a Louis XVI settee. Money is apparently no object, as Mrs. Larchmont’s name suggests.

 

      Dreaming of the adventures she can have with the ever-increasing amounts of money offered for the sale of her grandfather, Lizzy realizes that nothing will be fun without him. She declines the sale of a human being, let alone her relative, and sets the stage for some dynamic discussions between younger readers of this book and the adults around them.


      Illustrated by T. Kyle Gentry, Grandpa for Sale is a simple story with some sophisticated meaning to it, containing amusing puns, sly references and a lot of life lessons.

Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable.

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
