The Parakeet Named Dreidel by Isaac Bashevis Singer

The Parakeet Named Dreidel by Isaac Bashevis Singer

$ 17.99

When young David and Mama and Papa are celebrating Hanukkah one frosty winter evening in Brooklyn, Papa sees a parakeet sitting on the window ledge. He lets the parakeet in and everyone is delighted to find that it speaks Yiddish.

They name it Dreidel and it becomes part of their family. Many years later, when David is in college, he is at a party one night and tells Dreidel's story―only to discover that Zelda, a young woman at the party, owned the bird herself as a child. Papa and Mama are worried that they will have to give their beloved pet back, but then David and Zelda decide to get married after college, and everyone agrees that they should take Dreidel with them as they start their own family.

This 2015 picture book version of Singer's beloved story features  illustrations by Suzanne Raphael Berkson.
