    Cute little book with interesting story. Great for wanting to teach/ learn about Yiddish culture/words.

    This book was selected as a 2008 notable social studies books for young children. This book tells the story of five gefilte fish and their mother through a tale of Yiddish Culture. This creatively designed story is a tale of how five gefilte fish went out each day and day after day, one less came back home. Yiddish culture shines through in this story as words such as "oy vey", "mensch", and "kvelling" are used. This is a fantastic story to teach young children about this culture through humor. [...]

    I read Five Little Gefiltes by Dave Horowitz from the Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People (2008). A parody of Five Little Ducklings, Five Little Gefiltes is the silly story of 5 gefilte fish balls that leave their jar to visit various fun places in New York City (the theater, for example). After each trip, one gefilte decides not to return home, to which the mother exclaims “oy vey!”. Horowitz’s website claims “you don’t have to be Jewish to love this book—but it coul [...]

    I can honestly say I have never heard of a gefilte before I read this story. I had no idea it was a type of fish. This was an interesting book to read and I liked the way some of the versus rhymed. It conveyed the message of curiosity and what can happen when curiosity takes control. The illustrations were exciting to look at and it was interesting to see where each little gefilte ended up the next day. It was like a guessing game.

    Oy, such a cultural reference sillyness-- we got this through PJ Library and are passing it on to another child. Based on Five Little Ducklings, which we don't like all that much, the gefiltes wander off and have Yiddish-filled adventures. (Our version had an explanation of what gefilte was in the front, and a glossary of the Yiddish terms in the back.) Probably a good replacement for The Carp in the Bathtub, though.

    This was a gift to me from a dear friend who works in Penguin's art department and wanted to brighten my day. It was a complete success! It's cleverly written, brilliantly illustrated, and even includes a Yiddish glossary in the back for Gentiles like myself. Recommended to anyone who needs a reason to smile.

    I picked up this book at a used book store for $1. my daughter and I LOVE reading it and have easily read it together 25x. the story is sweet, and funny, all while teaching a bit of Yiddish. try to read it aloud WITHOUT a classic New York accent. In addition to the sweet story, the illustrations are wonderful. what a treasure!

    My 3-year-old got this book from the PJ Library. Hilarious! Filled w/Yiddishisms. My son is now walking around the house pretending we're all gefiltes and saying "what are you talking about?". I can't get him to mimic the Yiddish accent though. He especially likes the "play" in the book, "Little Miss Matzoh."

    An appealing paean to New York Jewish culture that, like I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel, is more than just a parody of a well-known rhyme. This book is as much for the adults reading aloud as the children listening, and it's a lot of fun.

    Beth Wood
    This book is clever and entertaining. There are small touches in the illustrations that will delight adults, and a lovely smattering of Yiddish words, along with a glossary at the end of the book. The mama crying "oy vey!" filled me with delight. A fun book for a grownup or a child.

    This book was very cute and the pictures went wonderful with the story. I also liked how they have the good faces and that they talked. Also this book teaches you about a Jewish food. And also has some Jewish words which is a wonderful way to learn about someone else's culture

    Excellent introduction to conversational Yiddish, and the incredible amount of guilt a Jewish mother is able to lay upon her children. Fantastic details really evoke a memorable and believable pre-Giuliani New York City.

    What an absolutely hilarious book! It is perfect for Passover and all year round. It is a super cute counting book for young children, plus all of the side notes will keep the adult readers amused. Just perfect for your favorite Jewish preschooler.

    You'd probably have to be Jewish and grown up in NY to get this one, but it's great. Fun to find the little gefiltes hiding Also, makes me want to do a study of Jewish picture books to see how New York appears as a "character" across stories.

    "Such a nice book." I was drawn in by the cover art and perfect quote. It's a smile-inducing read with wonderful illustrations. I loved the usage of extremely New York City phrases. I live on the Lower East Side and this feels like it's an homage to everything old-school New York City.

    Cute take on Five Little Ducks. It is just before a holiday and Mama loses track of her gefilties, one by one. Filled with Yiddish phrases and Jewish tradition it introduces a minority culture with humor.

    This was a book for William from the PJ Library. Great way to introduce him to Yiddish, very sweet story and pictures.

    This was just stinkin adorable. Also, it's a GREAT way to teach someone some conversational Yiddish :)

    Hear an interview about Five Little Gefiltes with author dave horowitz (yes, he prefers lower case) on The Book of Life podcast's March 2007 episode at jewishbooks.



    I guess this book is kind of pointless, but come on. It's about gefilte, and it uses lots of Yiddish, like shvitz-ing. That's awesome.

    A fun addition to our collection of Hanukkah reading, although certainly it will be read other times of the year as well. Cute, humorous and lots of great Yiddish for the kids to learn.

    My son loves this book! He asks to read it over & over.

    This book discusses the Jewish traditional food called gefilte's and how they are made. It counts down from 5 to 0 and back up to five once the mom finds her babies.

    Very cute. Fun to do with an accent. A great way to learn some Jewish words. I like to sing it to five little ducks (although it doesn't quite fit).

    Story made me laugh all the way through. Love the inclusion of yiddish throughout, very cute rhythm and storyline.

    Such a nice book!!!
