The Schmutzy Family

Written by: Madelyn Rosenberg

First line: First thin Sunday morning the Schmutzys rolled up their jeans and went wading in the malodorous Feldman Swamp.

Why you should read this book: If you know just a little bit of Yiddish, you can imagine what the Schmutzy family's primary passion is: getting dirty. Even Mom and Dad get in on the fun and don't mind the filth, up until Friday afternoon. When it's time to prepare for the Sabbath, the entire family cleans their home and their persons and enjoy a schmutz-free holy day.

Why you shouldn't read this book: If a speck of schmutz dares enter your sparkling home, you attack it with the nearest schmatta.
