Ora de Despertar / Time to Wake Up!

 A companion to the award-winning children's album of the same name, the bilingual (English/Ladino)Ora de Despertar (Time to Wake Up) illustrated book highlights rituals of the morning and what to be thankful for upon waking up. With the backdrop of the Hebrew Modeh Ani prayer, the book (illustrated by artist Miriam Ross) offers a way for families to get a fresh look at Sephardic culture and the relevance of Ladino today. Interweaving the languages throughout bright colored pages and scenes, the book shows a joyous picture of contemporary Jewish diversity. Meant for children ages 0-5.
