Pairing “bluegrass, bossa nova, and more with clever wordplay,” this album is a perfect addition to your kid’s Hanukkah. Mister G (whose birth name is Ben Gundersheimer) is the winner of the 2015 Latin GRAMMY Award for Best Children’s Album, along with four Parents’ Choice® Gold Awards. This album has 14 songs in English, Hebrew, Spanish, and Yiddish on topics such as holidays, family, food, and language.

This book is for teens and tells a fictionalized version of the real-life story of Auschwitz prisoner Dita Kraus — and how she risked her life to save books.
