Chik Chak Shabbat

author: Mara Rockliff
illustrator: Kyrsten Brooker

When Goldie Simcha doesnít joyfully throw open her door to welcome everyone into her apartment for a meal of her famous cholent, her neighbors wonder what could be wrong. Little Lali Omar knocks on the door to 5-A, only to learn that Goldie was feeling too sick on Friday to cook, and everyone knows you canít make cholent in a hurry, right away, chik chak! But it just isnít Shabbat without cholent. What can her neighbors do to save the day?

ďAs warm and comforting as a bowl of cholent, this does a fine job of showing how the American mosaic can also be a satisfying whole.Ē ó Booklist (starred review)
