The House of Joyful Living (Hardcover)

$ 16.95 $ 14.95

High on the roof of an apartment building is a garden where neighbors come to laugh, to dance, and to share – stories of helping others, breakfasts of challah and herring, and, once a summer, a Roof Party! Surrounded by loving adults, a girl with cabbage curls feels she lives “on top of the world – in paradise.” But something is about to change. Mama’s belly is growing bigger – and bigger! Can the girl share her mama and papa, and her wonderful rooftop world, with a new baby?


Based on the author’s own New York City childhood, this warm and spirited story – with bold art in the style of public murals – is a joyous and heartfelt celebration of community.
