November 30, 2020 -What are your favorite stories from growing up? Well, make room on your bookshelf for the chickens who dreamed of speaking Yiddish. We dive into a treasure trove of children's literature, brought together here for the first time by Miriam Udel. Her book is Honey on the Page: A Treasury of Yiddish Children's Literature.

Storytelling binds us all together, so you don't have to be of the Jewish faith to enjoy these tales, although they'll speak in a different way to those readers. Miriam Udel is associate professor of Yiddish language, literature, and culture at Emory University. She holds an AB in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and a PhD in Comparative Literature, both from Harvard. In 2019, she was ordained a rabbi at Yeshivat Maharat.

Her previous book is  Never Better! The Modern Jewish Picaresque, which earned the 2017 National Jewish Book Award in Modern Jewish Thought and Experience. For more, visit or Miriam Udel on Twitter and Instagram.
