How will Kaley ever find time to learn to make Bubby’s delicious knishes? She can’t wait for Bubby to teach her the intricate recipe, but Kaley is too busy to learn. Years go by, and now Bubby can’t see so well. In “Wishes and Knishes,” Kaley helps Bubby and keeps this beloved family tradition alive. Readers can even learn to make knishes themselves.

Bubby’s potato knishes, a delicious filled pastry from Eastern Europe, can be compared with similar food traditions around the world. Related topics to explore with children are priorities and decision-making; blindness; life celebrations in different cultures; aging; relationships with grandparents; and what makes a cousin.
