Mrs. Katz and Tush - By Patricia Polacco

A lonely Jewish lady shares her customs and her heart with a little African-American boy.  "Tush" is an adopted cat, so named because the poor creature has no tail.  This is truly a heartwarming story of friendship and love.  Readers will pick up on a sprinkling of Yiddish, while learning about special celebrations and holidays.  Polacco's watercolor illustrations are just as priceless as her stories.
