I'm taking a multicultural children's lit class and one of the categories is Jewish lit. But basically everything we talk about in class is related to Ashkenazi Jews. Do y'all have any suggestions for Sephardi or Mizrahi Jewish children's lit or suggestions on where to look?
- Nono’s Kisses for Sephardic Children;
- The Power of Song: And Other Sephardic Tales;
- A Treasury of Sephardic Bedtime Stories;
- Sephardic Children’s Haggadah;
- Abuelita’s Secret Matzahs.
I might have some more after Shabbat.
ETA: @mystery–seeker made the following recommendation:
the book “The Diamond Tree” has folktales from all over the diaspora, with great representation of Mizrahi and Sephardi stories
