StoryMakers in the Kitchen with Jane Breskin Zalben

Date cakes and rugelach?! Yes, please! Join Jane Breskin Zalben for StoryMakers in the Kitchen with Rocco and Christine Whelan from iconic, Brooklyn Middle Eastern grocery, Sahadi’s. You’re in for a sweet treat as Jane takes us through a recipe from the back of her book, A MOON FOR MOE & MO, a Sydney Taylor Award honoree!

About the Book

Moses Feldman, a Jewish boy, lives at one end of Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, while Mohammed Hassan, a Muslim boy, lives at the other. One day they meet at Sahadi’s market while out shopping with their mothers and are mistaken for brothers. A friendship is born, and the boys bring their families together to share rugelach and date cookies in the park as they make a wish for peace.

About Jane

Jane Breskin Zalben began drawing seriously at the age of five. To encourage her artistic talent, her mother took her for weekly art lessons at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her father called her drawings “love pictures,” and in second grade Jane began to explore her gift for writing by composing poetry for the class newspaper. It is no wonder that today Jane Breskin Zalben is a well-known author and illustrator who has published about fifty books for young readers.

What a wonderful book and as a native of Brooklyn I can’t wait to share it with children and teachers. I always enjoy the recipes that Jane includes and look forward to to preparing some Rugelach. I’m sure my husband will be happy about that!
