Top Ten New Jewish Books for Kids

The Rooster Prince of Breslov By Ann Redisch Stampler

Buy This Book

I think this traditional Jewish tale offers a particularly important message for children and parents today, whose lives are often full of blessings, but also complications. In this story, a prince who has everything he could possibly want suddenly becomes overwhelmed, strips naked, and believes that he is a rooster. It is, in fact, abundance that drives the prince mad and changes him into a bird. And it is a wise man, willing to become a rooster himself, who brings the prince back. This is a great book for any reader, but it’s especially perfect for kids who don’t know just how lucky they are.
