About the Author
Determined to help bring Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) culture to a new generation, Sarah Aroeste, a Ladino singer, author, and cultural activist, draws upon her Sephardic family roots to present original Ladino songs and prose. She is the author of the Ladino board book Buen Shabat, Shabbat Shalom. She lives in Massachusetts.
Ayesha L. Rubio was born in Madrid, Spain, one cold evening in February. Like many children, she loved to draw. Unfortunately for her family, any surface was an empty canvas for her. One day her grandfather taught her to draw horses and use paper instead of furniture or walls. Years later, she studied fine arts in Spain and England and began to work as an illustrator and writer, collaborating with publishers worldwide. Visit her online at AyeshaLRubio.com.

"The art's bold and cute, with a Pixar vibe, and I love the tiny Sephardic décor touches, like the framed hamsas on the wall." -- Marjorie Ingall, Tablet Magazine

"I think that this book would be helpful for Sephardic Jewish children because it shows how some Sephardic Jewish families celebrate Shabbat." -- Jill Harris

"What sets this book apart is the use of Ladino, a Spanish-derived language of the Jewish Diaspora not widely spoken worldwide. Families with a Sephardic background will particularly appreciate this book."-- Kirkus Reviews
