This festive parody reimagines a classic bedtime book as a lively Jewish family gathering complete with bubbies and zeydes, a dreidel, and a shmear on a bagel. Includes an exclusive latke recipe by Ina Garten, TV's Barefoot Contessa!

In the small blue room there was a bubbala, and a little shmatta, and then--oy vey!--came the whole mishpacha! This zesty parody of one of America's favorite picture books offers a very different bedtime routine: one that is full of family exuberance and love. Instead of whispers of "hush," this bedtime includes dancing and kvelling, and of course, noshing--because this little bunny is a Jewish bunny, and this joyous book celebrates the Jewish values of cherishing your loved ones, expressing gratitude, and being generous. Filled with Yiddish words, the book includes a phonetic glossary and even an easy latke recipe by beloved cookbook author Ina Garten, who calls the book "brilliant, beautiful, important, and so much fun!"

Goodnight Bubbala Review

I gave this book to my son for his "49th" birthday and he loved it! We laughed and laughed until our bellies ached! We both heard words that we hadn't heard spoken for years and the illustrations are hilarious. What a wonderful way to keep Yiddish alive! Thank you, Modern, Tribe.

Good Night Bubbala

It is so adorable. I bought it for my own grandson, and this was a friend's grandson who was just born. My friend loved it.
