About The Book
An ALA Notable Book.
“Singer’s memories of his youth in Poland make a powerful, brilliant children’s book. The author lays out a panorama of Jewish life in the city — the rabbis in black velvet and gabardine, the shopkeepers, the street urchins and schoolboys, the poverty, the confusion, the excitement of the prewar time. But even more, the author reveals himself; and the torments and mysteries that plagued him as a child will make his stories fascinating to other children….Reflecting a bygone world, the photographs add a further note of realism and power.” ―The Horn Book
A Day of Pleasure is the winner of the 1970 National Book Award for Children’s Books.
