Note: 
Did Sholom Aleichem really have a mean stepmother? Did he compile a dictionary of her colorful Yiddish insults? Was he the boy making those grotesque faces behind the melamed's back in kheder? These are the kind of details, fascinating to children, that Sholom's Treasure deals with. Erica Silverman and Mordecai Gerstein have combined their gifts and knowledge of Sholom Aleichem to tell and show children some events - tragic and comic - from his early life. This charming story, part biography and part fiction, will introduce children to one of the great comic writers of our age and a prime chronicler of the Jewish people at the turn of the past century.
