|Penina Farina and the Humongous Snowstorm
|Level P / Grade 3-4
A giant blizzard is on the way... Penina Farina is a fun and friendly third-grader who speaks a little too loudly and is always on the go. When weather reports predict that a humongous snowstorm is headed toward Catchupspill Valley, deep in the Fettucine Mountains, the Farinas frantically prepare — but then realize they’re overloaded with pasta! Macaroni, ziti, orzo, spaghetti...and it’s almost Pesach! An unexpected visitor has a clever solution — but will it work?
Penina Farina and the Humongous Snowstorm, by talented author Fradl Adams is a hilarious, heartwarming tale that will inspire readers to make lots of pasta and never leave others out in the cold.
"Just the name of this adorable chapter book will draw young readers into Penina’s whimsical world. Kids will love venturing into Catchupspill Valley and seeing how the perfect storm of Pesach, a blizzard, and piles of pasta all come together in one giant mitzvah." — The Jewish Press
"Although the book is written and illustrated for an Orthodox audience (males all wear kippot and have visible tzitzit), it is still enjoyable and relatable while providing many great lessons for non-Orthodox readers." — Association of Jewish Libraries
