For this child’s family, Fridays aren’t like other days. On Fridays, the hustle and bustle is a little different. Everyone seems to be getting ready for something special -- something cozy and wonderful. What could it be?

What Other Families Say About This Book

"Great book and kids love hearing it. What I really like about though is the multiracial family and that main character is black. For my family this is a "2-in-1" book touching both on themes of multiracial families and Jewish observance."
"We love this book! Normalizing difference is so important and I greatly appreciate the way in which you help children realize that there's no "normal" Jewish family - we're all diverse in our own ways and our commonality is the beauty of Judaism."
