Cover: Bubbe's Got the Beat

“A loving rhyming adventure features Bubbe, who has gray hair and wears bright red sneakers. She makes chicken soup and challah, but she is ‘totally cool.’ Using a rap-type rhythm and rhyme, Press shows the love between a grandparent and grandchild as they work together to prepare for the family Shabbat. Each member of the family participates in the Friday night blessings as they enjoy their Shabbat dinner. The beautiful full color illustrations add to the charm of this board book. Occasionally the rhythm is a little off, and the vocabulary reflects a 1960’s generation (groovin; know what ‘m sayin; neat;), which is especially incongruent when Bubbe’s grandson is rapping. Zaydes will enjoy reading this book, too.” – Association of Jewish Libraries
