by | Read by Patricia Polacco, Omar Sharif Scroggins

Children Ages 4-8 • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 1992

What a feast for the ears and eyes. This winning combination of author, illustrator and reader is one and the same person, Patricia Polacco. With her narration, Polacco adds a vivid dimension to her story of friendship and traditions. As Mrs. Katz, she speaks of "kaddish," fresh-cooked "kugel,"and her little "bubbelah" with perfect expression, and all readers understand the words. The addition of Scroggins to read the part of Larnel, the African-American boy who befriends Mrs. Katz, brings a nice immediacy for young listeners. The emphasis stays on the story while carefully chosen music and vibrant illustrations complete the program. This multi-cultural event is a read-along for every family member to enjoy.
