A New Book by Varda Livney: Rosh Hashanah with Uncle Max

Artist Varda Livney’s newly published kids book Rosh Hashanah with Uncle Max is coming to America. The book’s publisher is Kar-Ben Publishing, a division of Lerner Publishing. In the U.S. it will be distributed to all baby members of PJ Library for free.

Rosh Hashanah with Uncle Max is a board book introduction to The Jewish New Year. It has all of the necessary elements of a Rosh Hashana book: Apples & honey, a quirky uncle, a beautiful sunset, a festive meal and a birthday cake.

Uncle Max is coming to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the birthday of the world, with the people he loves. They watch the sun go down, eat their holiday meal, dip challah and apples into honey for a sweet year, and listen to the sound of the shofar.
