Pesach Lapbook in Progress: Hands-on!

pantry 029Further to my post last week about our first lapbook, here it is, with Naomi steadily working away.

It has been a fun project with lots of fascinating bits and pieces and I think she’s very impressed with the results.

pantry 028The piece she’s working on here is a “can we eat it on Pesach?” lift-the-flaps “game” that actually was not included in my original plan. But I thought it would be terribly remiss to leave out the whole stuff-we-eat-and-don’t-eat item from the folder, so even though it’s a bit crowded – slash – cluttered in the folder right now, I’m satisfied with everything that I’ve included.

You can see it a little closer here: I folded the page and created the flaps. She chose four YES and four NO foods from a whole sheet of food clip art (she used the rest for her other projects), glued them on the tops of the flaps, and then pasted YES and NO cut-outs underneath.

I have to say: the Dollarama glue sticks are a bit stinky. It’s a fruity smell, but not in a good way. In a bathroom kind of way. Ugh. But they’re 4 for $1 – so they’d better not be terribly toxic. And they are WAY better than any other kind of glue for a project like this because they dry almost instantly. Wish they’d had glue sticks when I was a kid!

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
