from the Author’s Note

“The creamy-bright beeswax chunks I used to make the illustrations for Apples Dipped in Honey are a far cry from the skinny crayons I broke to bits as a child.

My intent was to invite all the senses to experience of Jewish world: honey-coated fingers, Grandma’s hug, the clangor of noisemakers, the peal of the shofar, flickering holiday candles….”
