Chik Chak Shabbat

By Mara Rockliff
Illustrated by Kyrsten Brooker

“As warm and comforting as a bowl of cholent, this does a fine job of showing how the American mosaic can also be a satisfying whole.” — Booklist (starred review)

When Goldie Simcha doesn’t joyfully throw open her door to welcome everyone into her apartment for a meal of her famous cholent, her neighbors wonder what could be wrong. Little Lali Omar knocks on the door to 5-A, only to learn that Goldie was feeling too sick on Friday to cook, and everyone knows you can’t make cholent in a hurry, right away, chik chak! But it just isn’t Shabbat without cholent. What can her neighbors do to save the day?

  • The latest by Golden Kite Award winner Mara Rockliff, author of Me and Momma and Big John, Mesmerized, and Anything But Ordinary Addie.
  • A heart-warming tale that celebrates urban multicultural communities and the sharing of diverse traditions.
  • Includes a cholent recipe.
