Mamaleh Knows Best

Even readers without kids will enjoy Marjorie Ingall's parenting guide, Mamaleh Knows Best: What Jewish Mothers Do to Raise Successful, Creative, Empathetic, Independent Children. It's wise, funny, and universal. It's also the Book of the Month for May 2017 at the Jewish Women's Archive virtual book club. You can find the discussion questions here and join the conversation!

Marjorie is a columnist at Tablet, an online magazine of Jewish culture and ideas, where I'm especially grateful for her excellent coverage of Jewish kidlit. I also want to draw your attention to Marjorie's blog SorryWatch, where she parses excellent and abysmal (mostly abysmal) apologies.

FYI, autographed copies of Serendipity's Footsteps are still available to folks who become patrons of The Book of Life at Patreon. You can pledge as little as $1/month to qualify.
