Book of the month! Raquela's Seder illustrated by Sara Ugolotti. Feb 17 2023

Our unbelievably talented and prolific illustrator Sara Ugolotti has another fantastic title to share this month! 

Raquela's Seder was written by Joel Edward Stein and published by Kar Ben publishing. Author Joel Stein is a former staff writer for CTB/McGraw-Hill and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Our lovely Illustrator, Sara Ugolotti has collaborated on projects for magazines, children’s books, and children’s cartoon animations. 

Raquela's Seder, published on the 1st of Feb, 22, tells the tale of a young girl Raquela:

"Raquela yearns to celebrate a Passover seder, but Inquisition-era Spain is a time when Jews must hide their religion. Under the rising moon, her clever papa, the best fisherman in town, creates a unique celebration for his family. In his fishing boat on the sea, far from prying eyes, they celebrate Raquela’s first seder with matzah and the Passover story."

"Joel Edward Stein seamlessly weaves together two historic time periods of Jewish oppression into a moving Passover story of hope and freedom. His gentle text will engage children and will leave them feeling hopeful. Sara Ugolotti’s beautiful illustrations complement the story, especially her stunning double-spreads of the family celebrating under a starry night. She cleverly includes some historic scenes of Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea. And look at that stunning cover!"
