    Just read keeping my kids company during Yom Kippur services I had heard of this book from my childhood , and was struck by the kids desire to save the fish but the parents insistence on killing the various fishes in order to prepare the gefilte fish for the Jewish holiday If this tale were told today, perhaps a different ending in support of vegetarianism or similar

    This is one of my all time favorites from my childhood To this day, I cannot eat gefilte fish and it s all because of this book.

    An unusual story told by a woman of when she was a girl living with her parents and younger brother in a New York City apartment The narrator s mother was renowned for her marvelous gefilte fish, which she made twice a year, for Rosh Hashanah and for Pesach While the narrator and her brother loved the celebrations, they never ate any of their mother s gefilte fish, because the week before each holiday, their mother would buy a live fish and keep in the family bathtub, where the children would fe [...]

    This charmingly illustrated book concerns the efforts of Leah and her little brother to save their Mama s annual live carp purchase from its inevitable fate it will end up as the family s Passover gefilte fish that the children vow never to eat Living in Brooklyn in what appears to be the 1930s, Leah s family is lucky because they and their downstairs neighbor have their own bathrooms with a tub everyone else has to share Thus, the carp can live comfortably for a week in the bathtub until it is [...]

    In this story, Leah and Harry develop an attachment to a fish named Joe who is going to become their dinner Together, they try to free Joe from his temporary bathtub home This story has a very strong plot with a clear beginning, middle, and end, as well as a solid conflict The conflict is not resolved to create the conclusion readers may hope for, but it is realistic Although the characters are not dynamic, they are relatable because of the emotional details that the author uses.Young readers wo [...]

    As a parent trying to equip my kids with both a sense of European Jewish tradition and a vegetarian worldview, this book is just the ticket It tells a nice, usual kid friendly story about tradition, then problematizes the matter of traditionally eating animals It goes on to say that people we love and respect eat animals in spite of the clear problems with that and that you, the kid, can decide what you think about that And then you, the kid, have to decide how to proceed yourself It s a kid lev [...]

    My kind of sweetness the kids act adorably, but it is flavored with realism In this short picture book, two Jewish kids feel bad for the carp that is destined for their mom s gefilte fish The results are lightly humorous, and realistic than most books in the children befriend edible animal genre The evocative pen and ink illustrations add a lot of atmosphere to the story I would suggest this book for grades Kindergarten and up A gem.

    A mother s traditional gelfite fish becomes problematic for a sister and brother who have within the week prior to Passover befriended the carp they have named Joe that is swimming in their bathtub.A neat look at tradition and memoir as it is found in picture books.

    Kim

    Ellenjsmellen
    Really cute.

    Andd Becker
    This story about a carp becoming children s best friend is intriguing The illustrations by Joan Halpern are excellent.

    Miss Amanda
    gr 2 3 48pgshist, but a story about saving the carp destined to be gefilte fish and trying to keep him as a pet.

    Gretchen
    well written story of a brother and sister who discover the Passover fish in their bath tub and decide to save its life really funny and gives a good insight to how children might see things.

    Dale
    One of the best family stories I have, a true sentimental favorite that reminds me of my grandmother and the huge steps we re capable of taking in just a generation or two.

    Lorelei
    A delightful children s book I think I m glad I didn t come across it until I was older, or I might never have eaten gefilte fish again, either.
