Oy Toys, promoter of local Atlanta authors, is celebrating the release of two new books for Passover with a double book signing event March 15th.

Both Galia Sabbag, author of the Shira Series, and Spring Asher and the Asher children-illustrators of Our Family Haggadah will be signing their books at the Roswell store.

Sabbag is a teacher at the Alfred and Adele Davis Academy in Sandy Springs; Asher is an Emmy Award-winning television producer and author of the Lip Smackin’ Joke-Crackin’ Cookbook for Kids. Shira Detective is the fifth book in the Shira series, while Our Family Haggadah is the first book by the Asher family.

In realizing its mission of promoting Jewish authors and books, Oy Toys carries the Shira series books that not only expose children to delightful stories about Jewish holidays, and can also be used in the classroom. Their Family Haggadah is not only functional, but it is beautiful in picture and in spirit. It can also be inspiring to other families to create their own haggadot or family prayer books.

Asher said, “ Every year, the children would create pictures for the seder and we added them to our family haggadah. They became part of our tradition. Last year, I thought, ‘I’d like to share our haggadah with others, ’ and this is the result.”

Sabbag told us, “I wrote Shira, Detective – Chametz Detective when after telling the students about the custom of cleaning out the chametz, one of my students went home and became the chametz detective with her parents. I hope that all my Shira stories will help families celebrate Judaism together.”

Oy Toys owner Ruth E Levy said, “Both of these books are beautiful and will enhance the spirit of the family Passover celebration. We’re proud to be able to offer them at Oy Toys and And Thou Shalt Read.”
