When the Chickens Went on Strike a Rosh Hashanah Tale


When the Chickens went on Strike

When the Chickens Went on Strike by Erica Silverman


Here’s a Rosh Hashanah tale that reminds me of Click clack moo, cows that type because the animals get fed up with the “abuse” they suffer at the hands of Jewish people celebrating Rosh Hashanah. They decide to strike! Reminds me so much of the cows demands that they make on Farmer Brown.  I love how the author has taken the very old tale and turned it into something families can share together.  What child won’t delight in reading about a good kid (not unlike themselves) who overhears the chickens discussing their demands?

Here’s a video with my thoughts.


What do you think? Do you have a fave Rosh Hashanah book from your childhood?
