Hungry Clothes and Other Jewish Folktales (Folktales of the World) - Peninnah Schram
I had the chance to hear Peninnah Schram in person at the Holocaust Educators Summer Seminar put on by the Memorial Library in New York, and I knew I had to get this book to share with my own students as a way to end each class period on a positive note during our study of Holocaust literature. I'm sure I didn't do these tales justice, but my sophomores loved them anyway. This book served as my introduction to Jewish Folklore, and I'll be adding more to my collection as I go. What a wonderful way to pass on wisdom from one generation to the next.
