Based on the award-win­ning chil­dren’s album of the same name, the illus­trat­ed chil­dren’s book Ora de Des­per­tar (“Time to Wake Up”) is an all-orig­i­nal bilin­gual sto­ry in Ladi­no (Judeo-Span­ish) and Eng­lish that 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 offers a way for fam­i­lies to get a fresh look at Sephardic cul­ture and the rel­e­vance of Ladi­no in Judaism today. Inter­weav­ing the lan­guages through­out bright;y col­ored pages and scenes, the book shows a joy­ous pic­ture of con­tem­po­rary Jew­ish diver­si­ty. Meant for chil­dren ages 0 – 5.
