    1. A cute take on tall tales: a Jewish giant in the tradition of Paul Bunyan. Big Sam wants to make a giant Challah for Rosh Hashanah--read on to find out how he does it!



    2. There are not many picture books about Rosh Hashanah and there are even less that combine Rosh Hashanah with North American geography to create a Jewish-American folktale. This seems unique to me.
