Hannah's Way

An interview with author Linda Glaser and illustrator Adam Gustavson, creators of the picture book Hannah's Way which won the 2013 Sydney Taylor Book Award in the Younger Readers Category.

After Papa loses his job during the Depression, Hannah’s family moves to rural Minnesota, where she is the only Jewish child in her class. When her teacher tries to arrange carpools for a Saturday class picnic, Hannah is upset. Her Jewish family is observant, and she knows she cannot ride on the Sabbath. What will she do? A lovely story of friendship and community.
