Perfect for Children, Parents and Grandparents and Their Grandchildren

Sadie loves listening to Nana's tales, especially about the traveling candlesticks, kiddush cup, and challah cover they use every Friday night. Will Sadie ever be able to tell her own special Shabbat stories, just like Nana? Based on true stories in the Author Melissa Stoller's family, this book celebrates family history and connections.

Do you read with your child or grandchild? Do you like to tell family stories or wish that you would do that more? Come hear Melissa Stoller read Sadie's Shabbat Stories, present a powerpoint about its development, and discuss how to share family history and stories L'dor va Dor, from generation to generation.
