Raisins and Almonds
A Yiddish Lullaby
Scribble-scrabble. Scribble-scrabble. What is the noise coming from under Annie’s bed? It’s a little white goat, says her mother. Together mother and child create a fantastical adventure in an imaginary world. Based on the much-loved Yiddish lullaby “Rozhinkes Mit Mandlen” (“Raisins and Almonds”), this book includes a QR code link to a video recording of the song in Yiddish and English, as well as an author’s note and the Yiddish and English lyrics to the song.
