Jenny Davenport, a PJ Library mother, reports that her daughter, Charlotte, age 9, received PJ’s “Once Upon an Apple Cake: A Rosh Hashanah Story,” and read it in one sitting. She then chose it as her book club selection for the next month. Seven girls in the book club read and enjoyed the book, and five gathered to answer questions Charlotte wrote and make the apple cake from the recipe at the end of the book. “The baking was the most chaotic fun I’ve had in a long time! Everybody had a great time,” Davenport says. “Once Upon an Apple Cake” is by Elana Rubinstein, with illustrations by Jennifer Naalchigar.
